From a recent moose-stomping incident in Colorado to a Yellowstone bison calf that failed to be reunited with its herd after a well-meaning tourist interfered, summer headlines too often reveal national park guests ignoring the rules with dangerous and even disastrous consequences for both people and wildlife, especially in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park where millions of travelers visit each season.
While curiosity in spotting the area’s incredible fauna is natural, there is a right and wrong way to do it – and then there is the perfect way to do it, via a guided adventure with Jackson Hole, Wyoming-based nonprofit Wildlife Expeditions of Teton Science Schools’ knowledgeable, experienced team.
Wildlife Expeditions of Teton Science Schools offers a safe and fun, up-close experience viewing animals in their wildlife habitat, leavened with lively insights into local ecology, geology, botany and cultural history. Known for remarkable outdoor learning experiences in its Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem “classroom,” the safari tour provider brings a passionate, edu-vacational approach to its full- and half-day adventures. And the nonprofit’s almost 25 years’ experience ensures best opportunities to spot bears, bison, wolves, foxes, birds of prey, pronghorn, bighorn sheep, elk, bald eagles, moose and more.
