About the Mitigation Initiative

Energy has long been the cornerstone of Wyoming’s economy, with coal and oil historically dominating the state’s natural resource extraction industry and natural gas and wind energy leading growth in recent years. As energy development continues to expand across Wyoming, its footprint on the landscape is increasing, with important implications for wildlife.

As the U.S. capitalizes on domestic energy sources, western states will continue to accrue economic benefits, as well as the challenges of mitigating energy development impacts to wildlife. While there are numerous mitigation efforts underway, the extent to which mitigation efforts effectively ameliorate impacts to wildlife is largely unknown.

To address this information gap, the Ruckelshaus Institute is synthesizing and evaluating current wildlife mitigation practices to better understand the range of mitigation options available and is contributing to a better understanding of mitigation options, successes, and challenges.
