International Order of Rocky Mountain Goats
 
The International Order of Rocky Mountain Goats (IORMG) is a group dedicated to the preservation of the Rocky Mountain goat. The IORMG operates a non-profit arm called the Rocky Mountain Goats Foundation (RMGF).  Once endangered, the Rocky Mountain goat has shown a strong comeback due in part to the efforts of the IORMG/RMGF. Preserving this beautiful animal for our children and educating the public about its habitat is the IORMG and the RMGF's central focus.

The transfer of “Albert the Goat” from the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle was facilitated by the Foundation’s donation of $5K plus.  Albert replaces Buckskin Charlie, the previous resident stud, who passed away about two years ago. As some of you may recall, Buckskin Charlie was also brought to the CMZ through efforts by your Foundation some 14 years ago.
