SCC Vision

Establishment of the Rocky Mountain Goat Alliance (RMGA) as a respected voice for science-based expertise related to mountain goat conservation, with active involvement in the science and management of mountain goat populations across their range.

SCC Mission
  • To increase the involvement of the RMGA in mountain goat population and habitat management efforts across the range of mountain goats (including both native and introduced populations).

  • To enhance the availability, breadth, and use of scientific data and baseline information on mountain goat populations, distributions, and diseases to inform management decisions and conservation efforts.

  • To promote linkages between the RMGA and other conservation and scientific organizations, and governmental wildlife agencies.

  • To promote the scientific and conservation aspects of the RMGA mandate.

Scientific Rigour

Increase the availability of relevant science to support mountain goat conservation and management.

Scientific Data Available

Support fund-raising efforts related to mountain goat science and conservation by using the RMGA profile and membership.

Raise Funds

Increase the use and utility of citizen-science efforts, increase scientific rigour in volunteer-led inventory projects.

Support Research Projects

Support research projects on mountain goat habitats, populations, disease and other management issues through in-kind and/or financial support.

Education

Educate land and resource decision-makers regarding the implications of land and resource use on mountain goat habitat and populations.

Granting Program

SCC Projects Funded with RMGA Conservation Dollars

RMGA has long been known for its backcountry volunteer projects, public outreach, and educational materials. Thanks to our supporting members and sponsors, we are able to fund specific research and fieldwork beyond building our organization and hosting our own projects.

 

When grant applications are submitted, the proposal is first analyzed by the RMGA Science & Conservation Committee. After the project costs and details are understood for each application and all questions answered, the committee completes an evaluation rubric. Projects supported by the Science & Conservation Committee are then submitted to the Board of Directors for final funding approval.
