The WLCI is a long-term science based effort to enhance aquatic and terrestrial habitats at a landscape scale in Southwest Wyoming, while facilitating responsible development.” The WLCI study area encompasses the southwest corner of Wyoming where extensive energy development is impacting wildlife, vegetation, air, land, water and human social structures including agriculture. The USGS Science Planning Team developed a science strategy, which is guiding USGS science in collaboration with the multi-agency WLCI Coordination Team. Presentations at the 2015 Joint WLCI - Wyoming Chapter of The Wildlife Society Science Workshop demonstrate the breadth of research occurring under the WLCI project.
