Who We Are

Putting Words Into Action

Thanks to a generous gift from the Knobloch Family Foundation, The WYldlife Fund was thrilled to announce a $100,000 gift to the I-25 Buffalo to Kaycee Wildlife Crossing project! This stretch of highway between Buffalo and Kaycee is the second deadliest stretch of roadway for mule deer in the state. Click one of the photos below to learn more about this tremendous gift. In total, The WYldlife Fund will be sending $145,000 to the I-25 project thanks to friends like the Muley Fanatic Foundation and Williams Foundation! The WYldlife Fund will route these dollars through the Wyoming Wildlife Natural Resources Trust to create a dollar for dollar match to these proceeds, thus doubling the impact of these generous gifts. 


Not only is The WYldlife Fund raising money for critical wildlife projects (click here to see our 2020 Annual Report) but we are also rolling up our sleeves to give back to Wyoming by completing volunteer projects. We recently adopted a stretch of highway outside of Lander and in our first cleanup effort we collected enough trash to fill 40 trash bags!
