Take Action

Speak out for Emergency ESA Listing now!

Upon reviewing two petitions filed to list the gray wolf in the western U.S. as threatened or endangered under the Endangered Species Act (ESA), the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) found the petitions presented substantial credible information indicating listing action may be warranted.

The USFWS is now accepting public comments.

Our Programs

We are excited to announce our newest education and awareness project, the “Beaver Dam Cam”. Beavers are considered keystone species, meaning they create habitat necessary for other species survival. Unfortunately beavers are commonly trapped and killed for recreation or because they are considered a nuisance. The removal of beavers from the landscape negatively impacts many other plant, wildlife, and fish species. We have partnered with the USFS to highlight the important role beavers play in the ecosystem.

Wyoming Trapping Incidents

Tens of thousands of animals are trapped and snared in Wyoming every single year! Many are unreported.

These numbers represent only the trapped animals reported by less than 30% of trappers in Wyoming from 2008 to 2021. For every trap, we believe one to three non-target animals may be trapped. Every animal and bird of prey is a possible victim.
