Animas Foundation
The Animas Foundation is a private operating foundation that was created to acquire the 321,702-acre Gray Ranch from The Nature Conservancy and to manage it as a working ranch while preserving all of its unique natural features. The foundation operates four programs: Conservation and Land Management, Science and Education, Livestock Management, and Culture and Community Outreach. The Gray Ranch was conveyed encumbered by a Conservation Easement retained by TNC that prohibits partitioning of the ranch and management that would result in significant ecological degradation. The foundation has invested significant resources in restoring the historic infrastructure and establishing an environmentally friendly and ecologically responsible livestock operation.
