Beyond Conventional Conservation

Join us on Our Journey for Wyoming Wildlife

A shift is on the horizon, one step at a time!  We are continuing to channel our energy beyond the parameters of conventional conservation, and targeting the necessary actions to accomplish this goal. For three strong years, WU has consistently shared pertinent, up-to-date, science-based information with the public.  We have ignited the passion of individuals, organizations, local communities, and encouraged government agencies to achieve meaningful trapping reform and progressive wildlife management.  Throughout our growth, education has been a cornerstone of our urgent approach to ensure a future where humans and wild animals thrive living side by side with the creation of effective, lasting, and sustainable solutions that we can all be a part of.

Critical change will require even bigger and braver efforts to manage our wildlife as valued intrinsic animals living on a public landscape free of traps and snares, deadly cyanide bombs, and wildlife killing contests for fun and prizes. We can do this only through the commitment and support of our community and state.

WU continues to grow at a fast pace.  We need additional staff, volunteers, and your voice in the months ahead!  Please consider investing in Wyoming Untrapped and our Wyoming wildlife through the 21st Anniversary of Old Bill's Fun Run for Charities. Join us on our journey beyond conventional conservation to move trapping reform forward and to value and respect all of Wyoming wildlife of every size, large and small.

As always, we are grateful for your support: past, present and future.
