The American Prairie Foundation is a public charity located in the U.S. state of Montana. The foundation's objective is to build one of the largest wildlife reserves in the continental United States through a combination of new land acquisition and public land integration into the project, called the American Prairie Reserve.[1] To accomplish this, the foundation estimates that it must acquire 500,000 acres (2,000 km2) privately, which would then link together over 3,000,000 acres (12,000 km2) of existing public property. The Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge is one of the project's anchor properties.
