Help Wildlife Cross the Road in Wyoming, Support HB0039

Last year over 360 deer, elk, and moose were struck and killed by cars in Teton County, WY alone! We can do better than this and protect people and wildlife by developing safe wildlife crossings. Wyoming HB 0039 is a step in the right direction creating funding for these crossings through a Wildlife Connectivity License Plate program. Ecotour Adventures has pledged support for the bill and committed to outfit our vehicles with the plates should it pass.
