    As the western United States continues to face the increasing pressures of development, ranchers are becoming valuable allies in the fight to conserve large, ecologically intact landscapes. Historically, ranching has been depicted as an activity at odds with conservation efforts. By exploring the relationships that have developed between biologists and ranchers in the Big Hole Valley, this film re-examines the role private landowners can play in maintaining the biological integrity of large intact landscapes. The rancher’s restoration efforts, which initially began in response to the declining population of fluvial Arctic grayling, have grown into one of the largest restoration efforts of its kind. The private landowners have acted as important stewards for the valley for generations and with their continued support, this remote and rugged valley located in the southwest corner of Montana will remain intact and unspoiled for generations to come.
