In recognition of increasing biological evidence, the Alliance for the Wild Rockies board of directors recently expanded AWR’s active area of concern in the greater Wild Rockies to the Uinta and Wasatch Mountain Ranges in Utah and south into the Dixie National Forest in southern Utah.
There have been documented sightings of goshawk, lynx and wolves believed to have moved south from Idaho and Wyoming. Visionary organizations such as The Wildlands Project have long advocated a continental approach to protection and restoration of the greater Rocky Mountains. Moreover, as grizzly bears in northwest Wyoming expand their range south, potential connections to Utah for multiple wildlife species become more realistic.
We will expand our coverage of this important issue in the near future.
Alliance for the Wild Rockies remains committed to implementing its mission within its portion of the greater Rocky Mountains.
