Through our work in policy, advocacy, and public initiatives, we strive for management protocols that are sustainable for the wildlife, ecosystems, and the human economies that they effect. We believe that by working towards viable management practices, the Wyoming that we all cherish and know today, will thrive for generations to come.
The Federation also provides members with tools for sustainably managing wildlife themselves, whether it means landscaping tips to match local flora, or tips to make your property more mule deer friendly. Additionally, catching up on how wildlife are doing around Wyoming is important, whether that is the bison reintroduction on the Wind River Reservation or an update on the state of Wyoming’s wild sheep.
Ensuring sustainable wildlife management into Wyoming’s future is crucial to the Federation’s mission and crucial to the future of Wyoming’s economy.
COUNTY-BY-COUNTY – ECONOMIC IMPACT OF HUNTING AND FISHING REPORTS
WWF has commissioned economic impact studies evaluating how hunting and fishing, based on our robust wildlife populations, contribute to the tourism economy of each county.
The Park County study, completed as a pilot, showed hunting and angling generated more than $23 million in 2015. These studies are intended to provide information on the value of wildlife and recreation for the Wyoming Public Lands Initiative and the county committees assembled to consider the fate of Wilderness Study Areas and other public lands. By leveraging the economic modeling methods developed for the pilot project, work on the remaining Wyoming counties can be completed. Ultimately, every county and a full statewide assessment will result from this economic research effort.
