About

With winter season approaching, Wyoming’s migratory mammals are kicking off on their journeys to their desert wintering grounds, and we’re asking you to give them a boost! With deer, elk, and other critters giving it their all during migration, you can support the Wyoming Migration Initiative’s collaborative research and outreach to keep these herds moving and abundant long into the future. 

Our team is always working hard to tell the story of big game migrations, and widely share the data and tools needed to understand these incredible movements across the land. We have a goal of mapping every significant migration in Wyoming, and sharing that information to advance conservation. While more people than ever know and care about Wyoming’s migrations, much more work is needed to address the many challenges that our migratory species face.  

That’s why we are asking for your help. Your gift supports our public education efforts using GPS collar research, photography, video, social media, and maps to advance the understanding and conservation of migration corridors. All gifts of any size help fuel our efforts to document migrations and captivate the public with Wyoming's world-class migrations. And on Giving Day, your donation will be doubled by a matching fund of $5,000 provided by a generous donor, giving you twice the amount of impact. 

Many thanks, and happy Giving Day 2023!
