Mission Statement

A non-profit research organization dedicated to the conservation of the world's wild sheep through research and eduction.


Bighorn Institute is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization created in 1982 by a group of biologists and veterinarians to investigate the causes of bighorn sheep declines, with the primary focus being Peninsular desert bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis). Funding for Bighorn Institute's programs is derived from individual contributions, private foundations, and public sector grants. Our work is conducted with the cooperation and oversight of the California Department of Fish and Game, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Bureau of Land Management. Bighorn Institute provides ecological information related to bighorn sheep to various organizations and agencies to promote the conservation and proper management of wild sheep and their habitat. Although our main focus has been the study of Peninsular bighorn sheep in California, we have been called into ten western states, and the countries of Mexico, Mongolia, and Turkmenistan to assist with wild sheep projects.
