Atlas of Wildlife Migration
Although there is considerable interest in conserving ungulate migration routes in Wyoming, the full story of these journeys has never been told. The Atlas of Wildlife Migration celebrates Wyoming’s ungulate migrations by combining wildlife science and cartography. It seeks to bring attention to these migrations and catalyze their conservation through education and synthesis.
Migration Database and viewer
This project gives agencies, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and the public the ability to explore movement data behind Wyoming's diverse ungulate migrations and, where appropriate, incorporate this information into their work. This is the first time that GPS collar studies conducted in Wyoming have been centralized in a consistent, readily accessible, database and online viewer.

Our assessment provides a detailed account of this unique migration and relevant information to focus management and conservation efforts.
