Elk impacted by human recreation

As we work to preserve wildlife habitat and expand opportunities for outdoor recreation, we remember that it is a balancing act.

“Scientists found that elk avoided areas where humans were recreating. This avoidance resulted in habitat compression. All-terrain vehicle use was most disruptive to elk, followed by mountain biking, hiking, and horseback riding. When exposed to these activities, elk spent more time moving rather than feeding and resting.”
