Applied Research

WWC seeks to combine scientifically-rigorous techniques with on-the-ground experience to address real-world issues.  Our research is focused on the ecology and management of wildlife, rangelands and invasive plants.  WWC’s research approach is broad, and we actively foster working relationships and collaborate with other research organizations, universities, industry, federal and state agencies, conservation organizations, and other privately owned wildlife companies. 

As examples:  In 2010 WWC initiated a research project with the goal of developing a process for predicting impacts to sage-grouse populations from energy development and establishing mitigative measures required to offset those impacts.  This research project is being pursued in collaboration with the Yellowstone Ecological Research Center, Craighead Environmental Research Institute, University of California-Davis, Western EcoSystems Technology, Inc., and the University of Wyoming. 

WWC is prime contractor and project lead on one of two investigations on the effects of wind energy on sage-grouse.  Sponsored through the Sage-grouse Research Collaborative of the National Wind Coordinating Collaborative (NWCC) the 2014 field season will be the fifth year of data collection and analysis. 

Currently WWC is in the second year of assessing the effects of an experimental application of fertilizer to a sagebrush ecosystem.  The target of this effort is to improve habitat conditions for mule deer on the Pinedale Anticline.  Contracted by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, this work will be completed in the summer of 2014.  

These projects exemplify WWC’s approach to research--real-world problems being addressed collaboratively with cutting-edge science to provide managerially-viable solutions.
