Western Association of Fish
& Wildlife Agencies
Summer 2015 Meeting | Winter 2015 Meeting
Wild Sheep Working Group

Statement of Purpose and Structure:

"To identify priority topics and management challenges to wild sheep in the western U.S. and Canada; to collaboratively develop solutions to those challenges; and to foster strong relationships between wild sheep agencies and wild sheep advocates."

Formed in January 2007, the WSWG was tasked with developing a comprehensive, west-wide assessment of all facets of wild sheep management in the western U.S. and Canada. The initial assignment was to develop WAFWA recommendations for management of domestic sheep and goats in wild sheep habitat.

The WSWG is comprised of a representative from each WAFWA state, province, and territory (N=19) with wild sheep, plus representatives from the U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management. The WSWG meets twice/year, in conjunction with the WAFWA summer meeting and the Wild Sheep Foundation (formerly Foundation for North American Wild Sheep FNAWS) annual convention.
