Utah’s Diverse Lands, Waters, and Wildlife
In Utah, climate varies by elevation, ranging from semi-arid to montane. With deserts like the Great Basin and Mojave in the state, streamside areas are the richest landscapes in terms of species variety and wildlife numbers. Approximately 700 species of wildlife and thousands of species of insects inhabit Utah. Almost 250 species of birds use habitats within the Great Salt Lake environment alone.
As Utah grows, this spectacular wildlife heritage faces growing threats including habitat loss, stream channelization, environmental contamination, invasive species, fire cycle alteration and human disturbance. Fortunately, if we invest in the Utah Wildlife Action Plan today, we can conserve wildlife and vital natural areas for future generations!
A Powerful Coalition to Conserve our Wildlife Heritage
More than a dozen organizations and businesses from across Utah have come together to spread the word about the Utah Wildlife Action Plan and to secure the funding it needs for success. YOU CAN HELP by joining the coalition, engaging organizations in your community and urging our elected officials to support the federal State Wildlife Grants Program and legislation providing long-term, dedicated funding for wildlife conservation and related education and recreation.
