We love Wyoming’s proximity to wildlife but that doesn’t come without a cost.  ‘Big game versus vehicle’ collisions are at an all-time high in the Cowboy State.   The Nature Conservancy reports 21 big game road collisions daily in 2021, that number is most likely underreported and increasing at a cost of $55 million or more.   

The Wyldlife Fund is behind an ambitious project to fence 36 miles of I25 between Buffalo and Kaycee, one of the most dangerous stretches of road for motorists and mule deer.  The objective is to virtually eliminate wildlife being hit on this stretch of road.  Is that possible? 

What is this project to protect drivers and wildlife.  The Wyldlife Fund President Chris McBarnes explains.
