“Do you ever wonder — where do the wildlife go? Biologists throughout Utah are actively working to answer that question. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has partnered with Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) to capture, collar, and track big game throughout the state of Utah for the past few years.

“The effort is part of the Utah Wildlife Migration Initiative, developed in 2017 to identify and protect connective corridors that allow fish and wildlife to migrate.”
