Our Bull Trout Commitment

AWR's logo reflects our commitment to the bull trout—you can see the mighty bull and its terrestrial counterpart, the grizzly, in our logo in the upper right corner of this page. We chose the bulls and bears theme because these two animals are key indicator species in the Wild Rockies... their presence indicates healthy wildland ecosystems.
