Balancing Wildlife and Energy Topic of Next Talk
Amanda Withroder, a staff biologist with the Wyoming Game and Fish Habitat Protection program, will present “Conserving Wildlife in a Boom and Bust State: Wildlife Conservation and Energy Development in Wyoming” on Thursday, March 16 at 7 p.m. at the Werner Wildlife Museum. The talk is free and open to the public.
In a state that is dependent upon energy development and is home to an amazing array of wildlife, it is sometimes hard to strike a balance that benefits both, notes India Hayford, museum assistant at the Werner. The job of finding that balance falls in part on Withroder, who will discuss how Wyoming Game and Fish coordinates with state and federal agencies, industry, and other stakeholders to reduce the impacts of energy development in Wyoming on wildlife.
The talk is part of the Wildlife Study Group, which meets monthly in the Africa-Artic Room at Casper College’s Werner Wildlife Museum, located off the Casper College campus at 405 E. 15th Street. For more information call the museum at 307-235-2108, stop by Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
