“Wyoming wants to protect a celebrated pathway for Jackson Hole pronghorn that kicked off a national discussion of big-game migrations in the American West. The “Path of the Pronghorn,” used by a few hundred animals that are part of the Sublette Pronghorn Herd, is the first federally designated wildlife migration corridor in the United States. Tracking collars first detected the route decades ago. The Bridger-Teton National Forest first protected the corridor in 2008, but its southern reaches leading to pronghorn winter range have so far escaped recognition.”
