Lander Species: (Photos clockwise from top) Burbot, Sage grouse, Yellowstone cutthroat trout

FISH: Native fish species including Yellowstone cutthoat, burbot, and sauger are currently listed as species of concern within Wyoming. Two studies will quantify populations, migration routes and evaluate over habitat conditions to provide resource managers some answers to why these populations are in decline.

BIRDS: Sage grouse populations have declined by 50 to 80 percent throughout the intermountain west in the past 15 years. Currently the State and Federal agency resource managers are cooperatively working on mapping habitats and monitoring populations in an effort to identify possible problems and solutions for this species decline.
