“Our community is large and wildly diverse, which is at the same time our strength and our weakness. #Activate10 is a movement seeking to increase communication between individuals and organizations across Fremont County and to promote positive action in our communities.”
(Lander, WY) – Local nonprofit, the Wyoming Wildlife Federation, is currently holding a Fall Fund Drive to support their work on wildlife migrations, habitat restoration, and landscape connectivity.
Migrations are the main artery for Wyoming’s world-class big game populations. As home to the longest ungulate migrations in the Lower-48, Wyoming is the epicenter of migration advocacy and efforts to keep these crucial landscapes healthy and intact.
Wyoming Wildlife Federation has put boots on the ground for wildlife conservation for the last 84 years. In 2021, the Federation helped protect 130 miles of critical migration corridor through the Migration Corridor Working Groups, upgraded 7 miles of fencing on migration paths to be wildlife-friendly with the help of volunteers, and helped pass additional funding for WGFD’s Access Yes! Program, some of which will be allocated to wildlife overpasses. These updates will ensure herds using these migration pathways face less dangers along the way, keeping herd numbers and individuals healthier for Wyoming’s future.
Additionally, WWF Wyoming Wildlife Federation staff, appointed by Governor Mark Gordon to the Sage Grouse Implementation Team (SGIT), successfully helped maintain our conservative sage-grouse hunting seasons by showing the importance of hunting as a management tool for conservation.
The Federation’s Fall Fund Drive will support this work and more. In addition to supporting WWF’s work, for a $50+ donation, donors will receive the Limited-Edition Spoon & Crockpot Club T-shirt as a gift to show off their support for migration corridor conservation and access activism.
WWF designed this T-shirt to say thank you for helping cultivate healthy wildlife and wildlife habitats in Wyoming.
