Wildlife and Roadways Initiative
Annually, there are an average of 6,000 vehicle collisions with big game in Wyoming, resulting in $20-23 million in wildlife costs and $24-29 million in personal injury costs. Wildlife groups across the state are joining the efforts of Game and Fish and the Wyoming Department of Transportation to reduce those numbers by taking action to give wildlife the green light for safe passage.
With millions of acres of habitat across the Cowboy State it is important that we are proactive in protecting the environment which nourishes the growth and prosperity of our wildlife. The WYldlife Fund seeks to invest in on the ground projects which include but are not limited to combating terrestrial and aquatic invasive species. This includes combating the importation of zebra mussels which impact our fisheries or the fight against invasive species such as cheatgrass, medusa head and ventanata. The WYldlife Fund also works to make existing habitat safer by actions such as replacing unfriendly wildlife fencing throughout Wildlife Habitat Management Areas across Wyoming with friendly wildlife fencing.
