Supporting Working Land Stewardship and Resiliency
Understanding the challenges ranchers face and the level of sophistication required to operate these complex biological systems in an economical and ecological sustainable fashion will go a long way to ensure that working ranches and large predators who share those landscapes can endure and thrive long-term. ~ Southern Oregon Rancher
Having wolves return to their native lands does not have to preclude viable working ranches on those same lands. This concept sits at the center of WCI's philosophy and strategies. By supporting practices that increase ranch resiliency, economic viability, and operational efficiency we in turn support healthier lands, water, and wildlife habitat while ensuring that ranch families can keep ranching and the western heritage is preserved for generations to come.
WCI's holistic strategies include adaptive range management practices that focus on regenerative agriculture, prescribed grazing, progressive stockmanship practices, and increased understanding of predator biology and ecology.

Ranch Resiliency is the ability to hold multiple values and maintain a focus on long-term sustainability by growing the capacity across the land and people through strategic adaptive management approaches. This way you will be able to withstand the challenges and changes of time. ~ Hilary Anderson, Rancher, Montana
