"I don’t believe there has been a time in the history of our state when there has been a greater number and variety of challenges facing our wildlife; habitat fragmentation and degradation, disease, climatic extremes, endangered species listings and potential listings, invasive species, and many, many more.
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is directed by state law and expected by its residents to provide for the needs of all wildlife in the state. However, the single most important challenge facing the future management of wildlife today is the lack of adequate funding for management and conservation."
– Director Scott Talbott
CHEYENNE - Though our magnificent wildlife resources were here long before us, today it takes intensive management to keep them healthy and abundant. Working with hunters and anglers, landowners, conservation partners, state and federal agencies, and others, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department bears the ultimate responsibility for managing the state’s wildlife resources.
