Over the past 10 years, WLCI has funded more than 100 multi-faceted projects with direct support of nearly $12 million from the BLM’s Healthy Lands Program and the BLM Wyoming State Office. When partner-based leveraged funds are included, these projects have resulted in over $64 million of partner-based, collaborative, on-the-ground conservation in southwest Wyoming.

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...
