Annually, there are an average of 6,000 vehicle collisions with big game in Wyoming, resulting in $20-23 million in wildlife costs and $24-29 million in personal injury costs. Game and Fish, as well as the Wyoming Department of Transportation and various wildlife and community groups, are working to reduce those numbers to keep wildlife and drivers on the go.




Where your money goes
Purchases of Wildlife Conservation License Plates help pay for a variety of projects that help make wildlife and motorists safer on Wyoming roads.

UNDERPASSES and OVERPASSES
  • Highway underpasses and overpasses, coupled with fencing, can reduce crashes by 80-90 percent and ensure animals can safely cross roads to get to seasonal ranges.
SIGNAGE
  • Signage can make drivers aware of areas where wildlife are more likely to try and cross the road or encourage motorists to slow down in these areas.
FENCING
  • Proper fencing can help lead wildlife into a safer stretch of road or onto underpasses and overpasses where they will avoid traffic altogether.
MOWING
  • Mowing will make wildlife on the side of the road more visible to drivers.
