  • Trap Release Workshops 2022

    Trap Release Workshops are back, offered in three Wyoming towns starting 9/29/22. What you learn may save your pet's life. This year's workshops will be held in Laramie, Pinedale, and Jackson. This event was made possible by our wonderful sponsors, Friends of Bridger-Teton and PAWS of Jackson Hole, and through the generosity of our supporters, Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), Wyoming Coalition for Animal Protection (WYCAP), Happy Endings Animal Rescue (H.E.A.R),  and caring individual donors nationwide. We are grateful for every single one of you. Click on the image to learn more, and plan to attend one of these informative workshops.

Our Programs

We are excited to announce our newest education and awareness project, the “Beaver Dam Cam”. Beavers are keystone species, meaning they create habitat necessary for other species’ survival. Unfortunately, beavers are trapped and killed for recreation or because they are considered a nuisance. The removal of beavers from the landscape negatively impacts many other plants, wildlife, and fish species.

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.
