Cheyenne - The Wyoming Game and Fish Department, in collaboration with state and federal partners, will host a migration corridor forum in Casper. The forum is planned for Monday, Feb. 11, 2019 at the Game and Fish Casper Regional Office, 3030 Energy Lane. An open house begins at 4 p.m., followed by a panel discussion at 5 p.m. with an opportunity for public comment. Anyone who is interested in migration corridors is invited to attend.

The migration corridors of ungulates like mule deer, pronghorn and elk in Wyoming are some of the longest in North America. Over the past several years, Game and Fish and other researchers have continued studying the migration of big game animals. In 2016, the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission adopted a migration corridor strategy that details the process of migration corridor designations.

“Our goal for the upcoming forum is to reach out to Wyoming’s public. We want to share how Game and Fish studies and designates migration corridors as well as how we formulate our recommendations to land management agencies,” said Angi Bruce, Habitat Protection Program supervisor. “It will include presentations from our federal and state partners and clarification of agencies roles.”

Game and fish will review two new proposed corridors, Sublette Pronghorn and Wyoming Range Mule Deer. Current designated ungulate migration corridors include the Sublette Mule Deer, Platte Valley Mule Deer and Baggs Mule Deer.

Game and Fish plans to host additional community events to discuss migration. That meeting schedule is:

Kemmerer South Lincoln Training & Events Center Feb. 21 7-9 pm
