Roosevelt Elk

    Newer Older

    In the early 1900’s the Roosevelt Elk population plummeted to only about a dozen animals. Theodore Roosevelt, an avid hunter and an active contributor to wildlife conservation, created Olympic National Park in Washington (then called Mount Olympus National Monument) for future generations to enjoy and to provide protection for the Roosevelt Elk.

      Wonderful shot of the elk. You have captured such dignity in her gaze. I'm so glad that Teddy R. helped protect these beautiful animals.
