Trap Free Montana, Incorporated is a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization established in 2015. We are a grassroots boots on the ground nonprofit originating from our 2014 ballot initiative attempt for Trap Free Montana Public Lands (TFMPL). We are made up of very diverse supporters who, for one reason or many, oppose trapping.
Our mission is to connect people's heart and mind through the best available science, the truths in trapping, understanding, appreciation, and compassion to rise to the plight of wildlife and support biodiversity, respectful coexistence, and responsible stewardship.
Trap Free Montana's philosophy resonates with this quote 50 years ago by naturalist Baba Dioum,
"In the end we'll conserve only what we love, we'll love only what we understand, and we'll understand only what we've been taught."
Along with increasing your knowledge about wildlife, our goal is to be your credible resource for learning the truths in trapping. We aim to increase public awareness and advocacy for the wildlife, the domestic animals, and natural resources impacted, damaged, and destroyed in this archaic, indiscriminate, unnecessary, and cruel activity of trapping.
We partner with our affiliate, Trap Free Montana Public Lands, Inc., a nonprofit 501(c)(4) organization that advocates for trap free public lands and trapping reform primarily through the legislative process.
