Our Wyoming way of life depends on our wildlife. And that wildlife needs us too. Needs us to care. Needs us to act. Needs us to invest in a sustainable future for all.
WYldlife for Tomorrow connects Wyoming tourism and ancillary businesses with important conservation projects designed to protect wildlife habitat in the state. Through innovative, tax-deductible giving initiatives, businesses directly contribute to the success of on-the-ground improvements to the natural infrastructure sustaining our billion-dollar wildlife recreation economy.
As a participant in Wyoming’s tourism economy, you rely on our state’s wild places for your livelihood. WYldlife for Tomorrow provides a simple funding mechanism so you know your business contributions go directly to work sustaining wildlife.
All donations are tax-deductible through our partnership with The WYldlife Fund. Designated gifts ensure that your investment accomplishes what you most care about.
Our wild animals and open spaces bring millions of visitors from around the world to our state and through our business doors. If your livelihood depends on tourism, you know protecting wildlife is an investment in the future of your business – not to mention our beloved Wyoming home. As a Certified WYld pack member, you demonstrate your commitment to healthy habitats and thriving communities, both for the fauna and for your family, friends, colleagues, staff, and neighbors.

Wildlife tourism can protect the wild places we love and depend on for our lifestyle and livelihoods.
“43% of respondents indicated that wildlife watching was one of their top WY activities.”
2018 Wyoming Overnight Visitor Profile Study
The rapidly growing wildlife tourism industry accounts for more than 50% of the $1.5 billion-dollar Wyoming outdoor recreation economy, yet contributes very little to funding critical conservation projects across the state.
Focusing our efforts on key conservation projects gets work done and provides measurable results. You can direct your contribution to the project or approach that most excite you.
WYldlife for Tomorrow can help you reach conservation-minded customers. “65% of consumers will pay more for brands committed to positive environmental change.” The 2020 Strength of Purpose study from Zeno concluded that people are four times more likely to trust, purchase from, and recommend a company that takes care of our shared social assets.
Tourism-related businesses in Wyoming, whether lodging, food/beverage, guiding services, or other amenities, rely heavily on visitors who come to our state to experience wildlife and wild spaces. Stewarding the resources we depend on makes good business sense and protects our future.

Why are wildlife and wild places important to Wyoming?
How is wildlife conservation currently funded?
Wildlife conservation in Wyoming is primarily funded via the sale of hunting and fishing licenses, federal aid from the Pittman Robertson (PR) and Dingell Johnson (DJ) (excise taxes on hunting and fishing equipment), and a few other small areas. WGFD receives no property taxes from the state of Wyoming or other recreational users. In short, the hunting and fishing community currently shoulders the majority of the burden of wildlife conservation.
