Protecting Wyoming Wildlife

In a world where wild, untrammeled places are rapidly disappearing, Wyoming is unique. We still have rugged, awe-inspiring landscapes to explore. We have rivers that harbor world-class trout and vast stretches of undeveloped land where mule deer, elk, and antelope migrate freely. The Outdoor Council works to ensure the health and sustainability of Wyoming’s wildlife, habitat, and ecosystems, not only in response to development proposals, but also within long-term land-use plans and through state and federal policy initiatives.

Protecting Migration Corridors

Open lands are necessary for the viability of many of Wyoming’s big game herds, including elk, bighorn sheep, mule deer, and pronghorn. At the Outdoor Council, we know this is especially true given the complexity of land management and puzzle-piece protections around the state. A holistic look at landscape-level planning on public lands not only benefits the herds but also protects hunting and other recreational opportunities.
