Statewide Habitat Plan

The Statewide Habitat Plan (SHP; formerly known as the Strategic Habitat Plan) was revised in 2020 to reflect additional information on wildlife and fish populations, distributions, and habitat. In particular, updates reflect activities under the Department’s current Strategic Plan. The SHP recognizes key wildlife habitat priority areas by delineating them as crucial, restoration, and/or connectivity (fish and wildlife migration) areas; and guides the Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s efforts in implementing habitat projects. Accomplishment highlights are compiled annually in the The Statewide Habitat Plan Annual Report.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has a long and proud history of systematically addressing threats to natural resources, and the Plan below outlines practical steps to begin reversing these trends in IAGs within Wyoming’s most important habitats.
