Greater Little Mountain

EcoFlight flew Wyoming Wildlife Federation with local and state elected officials over Greater Little Mountain in Wyoming where leaders and sportsmen groups are pushing the BLM to develop a RMP that keeps drilling out of prime big game habitat.

The Greater Little Mountain region is a unique high desert habitat that is considered by biologists and resource managers to be some of the most sensitive fish and wildlife habitat in Wyoming. The area contains large intact tracts of prime fish and wildlife habitat and has served as a hunting, fishing and recreational paradise for sportsmen and sportswomen for generations. This unique landscape contributes to the local economy, supporting up to 225 jobs in Sweetwater County, and generating $19.1 million per year.

Our conservation partners are seeking long-term protection of vital fish and wildlife habitats and angling and hunting opportunities in the Greater Little Mountain Area now and for generations to come.
