Current Topics

Rangeland stewardship can include various aspects of land management and, as many know, land management is a complex issue with many moving parts. One part are current issues that can have a major impact on how rangelands are managed and ultimately sustained. Current issues are usually topics that can be controversial and at times management can be broader than just at the state level. Federal species listings and management decisions are just one example of such issues. Through this project, viewpoint videos on topics of interest were developed to gather insight from individuals with differing perspectives and experiences.

Energy Development in Wyoming
Wyoming’s economy largely depends on natural resource extraction. Various individuals discuss their roles and experiences with Wyoming’s energy development.

University of Wyoming’s partner, the University of Arizona, has also developed current topic videos to provide a view of current issues land managers are dealing with in their state.
