YWS is a permanent home to non-releasable native species from the greater Yellowstone ecosystem. We work to constantly improve habitats and provide enrichment activities to promote natural behaviors, giving animals a longer and healthier life.

Our education platform, The Wildlife Connection, encourages kids and adults of all ages to explore the creatures and habitats of our unique and glorious ecosystem. We visit classrooms, put on outdoor workshops and camps, and provide guided educational tours on site, always striving to inspire people everywhere to learn and care about our natural world.
