Lisa is a co-founder of Wyoming Untrapped. She has been involved with land and wildlife conservation projects for more than 30 years. She pilots her small Cessna aircraft, from which she takes big-picture images of the landscape to document wild places, often those at risk. She has provided pro-bono aerial radio telemetry and monitoring for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Wolf Recovery Project and for various non-profit organizations, agencies and individuals researching and documenting populations of wolves, grizzlies, cougars, coyotes, elk, pronghorn, mule deer, moose, lynx, owls, falcons and other birds. Whenever possible, laughter is on the daily agenda.
“Wyoming’s wildlife management is not keeping pace with our modern society’s shifting views on the intrinsic value of our wildlife,” she says. “Programs and agencies need to transform to engage and serve broader constituencies, which will create a safe and humane environment for all our people, pets and wildlife. It’s time.” With civility and compassion, we can succeed.
