Wyoming's wild places, worth protecting!

Home to jagged mountains, rolling pasture, breathtaking desert and iconic wildlife, Wyoming is one of the last places where you can still see the majestic beauty that attracted settlers to the old West. Clean water, fresh air and scenic wildlands are what attract people to Wyoming and keep them here.
But that beauty has been increasingly under attack. Beneath the surface, Wyoming is rich in minerals and natural resources, especially oil, natural gas and coal. These resources are being extracted haphazardly and without concern for the landscape. This affects sensitive habitat for wildlife, recreational opportunities and our air and water.
Our national forests are becoming drill sites and our wildlife is threatened by dangerous state management policies. Learn more about these issues and how you can help protect wild Wyoming.
