Letters of Support

WYDOT's wildlife habitat connectivity project has the unprecedented support of more than 50 organizations from a wide spectrum of interests.  These letters came from conservation groups, industry interests, outdoor enthusiasts, congressional legislators, sportsmen, private citizens, local groups, national foundations, businesses, legal centers, and federal and state agencies.  All speak to the primacy of establishing a series of wildlife corridors to alleviate current wildlife-vehicle collisions, to promote biological diversity or continuance, and to utilize local economic and natural resources.  Furthermore, this initiative is intended to also anticipate growth and traffic increases and provide safe routes of travel for wildlife and motorists, today and for years to come.
