The BLM Rock Springs Field Office is currently revising its Rock Springs Resource Management Plan, which has implications for wildlife and sportsmen for many years to come. BLM manages more than 3.6 million acres of public land in the area and used for hunting, fishing, hiking, camping and other outdoor activities. WWF staff and our members regularly communicate with this field office. Our focus is on six unique landscapes for fish and wildlife, which are of considerable importance from a biological and recreational standpoint. Our six priority habitats include:
- Big Sandy
- Red Desert to Hoback Basin mule deer migration corridor
- Jack Morrow Hills
- Adobe Town
- Greater Little Mountain Area
- Twin Buttes
Wyoming Wildlife Federation has helped to draft management recommendations for the Rock Springs RMP
WWF, along with the Muley Fanatic Foundation, Bowhunters of Wyoming, Wyoming Wild Sheep Foundation, Wyoming Chapter of Backcountry Hunters and Anglers, Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership, and the Western Bear Foundation have drafted a letter addressed to the Rock Springs BLM Field Office, with management recommendations. The letter is meant to show a unified hunting and angling voice regarding specific management protocols that ensure healthy wildlife populations, healthy fisheries, and outdoor access opportunities.
