Wyoming Project

Private Lands Conservation

July 2020 - December 2024


Participating Agencies

  • Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation

This project aims to provide critical information for project selection - we are ranking the value of each project based on its protection of habitat within mapped migration corridors and stopovers. Project rankings are being used by collaborators such as the Natural Resource Conservation Service and land trusts throughout Wyoming to guide acquisition of conservation easements. This project holds promise to catalyze targeted conservation of private lands that migrating ungulates rely on, and we hope it will serve as a conservation model for other regions.
