The refuge has donated both funding and recorded public service announcements in support of the Wildlife Foundation's "Give Wildlife a Brake" campaign, a program designed to reduce wildlife-vehicle collisions.
Additionally, the refuge
is part of the "Nature Mapping Jackson Hole" working group that
trains volunteer citizen scientists to record wildlife sightings in a
comprehensive database for use in land use planning and wildlife-related data
needs. Fence removal projects on the National Elk Refuge supported the Foundation's program to remove obsolete and dilapidated
fences, allowing wildlife to move more freely throughout the valley and eliminating hazards that may cause entanglement.
