In western Wyoming, south of Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National Park, the Wyoming Range is an isolated range of peaks rising up from sloping foothills and vast sagebrush plains that runs for about eighty miles in a north-south direction. The Wyoming Range is popular for a variety of reasons, but especially for its impressive big-game populations, which include some of the densest populations of mule deer in the state, four elk herds and half the state's moose.
The mountains of the Wyoming Range are too special to drill, yet their world-class recreation, wildlife and water resources are threatened by proposed oil and gas development.
At Wilderness, we're working to protect the world-class wildlife and recreation resources of the Wyoming Range from reckless oil and gas drilling.
At Wilderness, we are working with local coalition partners to steer oil and gas drilling away from the most sensitive wildlands and to expire leases that could contribute to more drilling and more contamination of this vulnerable place.
Hear artists, activists and adventurers share what the ownership and legacy of these American wildlands means to them.
Wilderness is a precious resource with many human, natural and economic benefits that we need to protect.
