The Biodiversity Institute

The University of Wyoming's Biodiversity Institute seeks to promote researcheducation, and outreach concerning the study of living organisms in Wyoming and beyond.

Biodiversity encompasses all of life. It includes plants, animals, fungi, microbes, ecosystems and all of their connections and interactions.  Wyoming’s vast stretches of wild open spaces are home to astounding manifestations of biodiversity. The longest migrations of ungulates (pronghorn and deer) on our continent take place between its mountains and prairies. Wyoming’s ecosystems still house most, if not all, of the native species found when European settlers moved into America. Our Institute’s mission is to document Wyoming’s biodiversity and to communicate its beauty and importance to the students of all ages, to the citizens of our state, and to the world.

We do this through research and art grants, citizen science programs, K-12 educational programs, movies and concerts, and much more.  We welcome partners of all ages and walks of life.  Explore our site and get a taste of the incredible biological richness of our state, and how you can get involved in our mission.
