Wild Utah Project provides technical support, scientific research, and GIS (computer mapping) analyses to land managers, and other conservation partners.
The mission of the Wild Utah Project is to maintain and, where needed, restore the health of our natural lands in Utah and adjoining states. We do this by applying the principles of conservation science to land management.
Wild Utah Project provides scientific research, technical support including the development of ecological assessment methods and conservation tools, and computer mapping analyses using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to land managers, agency biologists, citizen scientists and other conservation partners. Wild Utah Project fills a critical niche here in Utah and the Intermountain West, by providing the scientific support needed to support informed regional land use decisions in a way that restores native wildlife, maintains ecological integrity, expands wilderness, protects biodiversity, and provides for ecosystem resilience in the face of population growth and climate change.
