Wild Utah Project offers unique hands-on experiences to volunteers and interns involving the gathering and application of wildlife research data. We engage citizens in the field to collect and fill data gaps for species and associated habitats, as well as to support wildlife science and policy programs in contribution to positive outcomes for wildlife and habitat management.

Wild Utah Project conducts field studies and provides novel and existing peer-reviewed literature that can be used to support wildlife and habitat management on the ground in Utah.  We strive to identify unanswered scientific questions crucial to making informed wildlife and habitat management decisions, and conduct ecological studies that fill pending data/information gaps.

Through direct engagement in stakeholder processes and strategy development, Wild Utah Project assembles, delivers, and advocates for the use of the best available and up-to-date science to inform policy and management decisions in Utah.
