Pinedale Field Office

Wildlife

The Pinedale Field Office's wildlife program provides management recommen-dations for the habitats associated with numerous types of wildlife including sage-grouse, big-game, eagles, raptors, prairie-dogs, and others. The staff coordinates with other resource staff and completes necessary impact assessments for authorized projects. The staff also coordinates with other federal and state wildlife agencies in developing conservation strategies for wildlife management.

Currently the staff is involved in numerous conservation planning efforts for wildlife including grizzly bear, Canada lynx, sage-grouse and pygmy rabbit. By providing the best possible management recommen-
dations, the wildlife staff ensures that decisions made by manage-ment incorporate the needs of wildlife habitat. In the future, the wildlife staff is working on becoming more pro-active with management actions to ensure that wildlife conservation is a major goal of the BLM.
