About the Initiative

The WLCI is a long-term science-based effort to assess and enhance aquatic and terrestrial habitats at a landscape scale in southwest Wyoming, while facilitating responsible development through local collaboration and partnerships. The WLCI is an interagency working group of partners that is beginning the process of establishing a much larger coalition of government and non-government organizations. Local Project Development Teams identify local issues that are important to the landscape and cooperatively create projects to address identified needs for local wildlife, habitat, and other resource issues. Each Local Project Development Team includes local biologists, range managers, conservation districts, landowners, county commissioners, and other interested parties. The WLCI has four teams that are located geographically. Read More...

This product was produced to help quantify the effects of temperature and the frequency and intensity of wet and dry patterns across the Basin and to specifically place the 2012 drought in a historical perspective.

WLCI Celebrates 10 Years of Impact!  For 10 years the Wyoming Landscape Conservation Initiative had done just that: conserving wildlife on a landscape-wide scale. Read More...

These projects have created additional summer habitat that is in limited supply for the Trumpeter Swan, a species of conservation concern, and many other species identified as potential species at risk in Wyoming’s State Wildlife Action Plan.
