Grand Teton lies in the heart of one of the largest, intact temperate ecosystems in the world, which means there is an abundance of wildlife that call this park home.
The best time to spot wildlife during the summer is early in the morning or late in the evening.

GTNPF Supports Wildlife
- Grand Teton National Park Foundation funds strategic research, on-the-ground protection and restoration, and targeted education to support the long-term conservation and visitor enjoyment of the park’s wildlife populations and the habitat they depend on.
- During the last 20 years, the Foundation has supported conservation and research programs for gray wolves, grizzly bears, black bears, pronghorn, bison, osprey, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, mule deer, and more.
- The Foundation-funded Wildlife Brigade helps facilitate safe interactions between visitors and animals by managing roadside wildlife jams, patrolling picnic areas for unsecured food, and sharing educational information with visitors.
- Help keep Grand Teton’s bears wild and visitors safe – use bear boxes that are provided at picnic areas and campsites!
