Is the WLCI a top-down initiative or locally driven?

The mission of the WLCI is to implement a long-term, science-based program to assess and enhance habitats at a landscape scale in southwest Wyoming. While this effort necessarily involves executive oversights and procedures, actual implementation is the responsibility of a multi-agency Coordination Team based in the BLM Rock Springs Field Office that works with local, on-the-ground stakeholders. Four Local Project Development Teams are geographically located to develop and implement conservation projects that have local-level interest and support. The Coordination Team works closely with a Support Subcommittee that is comprised of existing agency personnel who conduct project development and implementation at the ground level. Other WLCI teams and committees leverage existing agency resources at multiple levels so each agency’s strengths can contribute to the success of the WLCI.
