The Wild Sheep Foundation, formerly the Foundation for North American Wild Sheep was founded in 1977 by wild sheep conservationists and enthusiasts. With a membership of more than 6,000 worldwide and a chapter and affiliate network in North America and Europe, WSF is the premier advocate for wild sheep, wild goats, other mountain wildlife, and their habitat. Since forming in 1977, the Wild Sheep Foundation and its chapters and affiliates have raised and expended more than $90 million on conservation, education and conservation advocacy programs in North America, Europe and Asia. These and other efforts have resulted in a three-fold increase in bighorn sheep populations in North America from their historic 1950-70s lows of approximately 25,000 to an estimated 80,000 today.
