Water for Wildlife is a conservation organization designed to benefit our nation’s wildlife. Their initial emphasis focused on antelope preservation and management. They did this through the development of supplemental water resources in selected areas. Both the habitat and wildlife are being impaired by lack of this vital resource.

The Wyoming State Game and Fish Department and the Bureau of Land Management cooperate jointly with Water for Wildlife in the creation and development of this unique conservation program.

The Middle Popo Agie River Restoration project goals include wildlife conservation, maintenance, protection, and development of wildlife resources, the environment, and Wyoming’s natural resources.

Approximately ten miles of the Middle Popo Agie River exists between the North Fork of the Popo Agie and “the rise” at Sinks Canyon.  This project indirectly benefits this entire length by providing a reach with cooler water and additional spawning habitat, and improving connectivity and water quality; all of which benefit fish and other aquatic species.
