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...

WLCI Facts

The WLCI combines the resources of multiple groups across southwest Wyoming to build a common vision for this large area, or landscape. The WLCI vision is for an area that balances open spaces, abundant wildlife, traditional agriculture and production of energy and other resources. Supporting this vision is use of science-based information and local expertise, development of partnerships, and exchange of information. Read More...
