The WYldlife Fund is active when it comes to supporting wildlife friendly fence initiatives across the state of Wyoming. This can include both modification of existing fencing and removal of dangerous fencing altogether. This work is performed in partnership and open dialogue with landowners.
One group we are proud to stand behind is the Absaroka Fence Initiative (AFI). The WYldlife Fund acts as the fiscal sponsor of this collaborative and dynamic group who is performing incredible fence work in and around the Cody area.
AFI works in cooperation with willing landowners and land managers, AFI aims to ensure fences are functional for livestock management and wildlife movement across the landscape through on the ground projects, public workdays and outreach to the community.
As AFI rightly points out, fencing is an essential piece of our landscape, yet when wildlife and fences intersect, the result can be costly for both wildlife populations and landowners. By bringing together the expertise and resources of our partners into a shared initiative, we can more effectively enhance wildlife movement and livestock functionality by adding, modifying or removing fences.
