Game And Fish Seeks Funding

Cheyenne, Wy –
Among them will be the state Game and Fish agency. Director Terry Cleveland says that his agency used to be able to rely on hunters' license fees for the majority of its income. But Cleveland says that income stream is relatively flat. And now the agency must focus more attention on wildlife conservation projects.
For example .Cleveland says the agency will need to ramp up its funding not only to manage grizzly bears if they come off the endangered species list .but also to study nearly 300 species Cleveland says could be at risk.
