Utah Department of Natural Resources

The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR), part of the Utah Department of Natural Resources (DNR), serves the people of Utah by managing, sustaining and enhancing the state's wildlife populations and by conserving wildlife habitat. The Division also oversees hunting and fishing opportunities statewide.

Utah is home to diverse and abundant wildlife and the Division has received national recognition for its wildlife management, world-class fisheries and variety of non-game species. DWR consistently performs wildlife transplants for turkeys, sage-grouse, bison, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, pronghorn and river otters. Ongoing work is being done to protect sensitive species, like native cutthroat trout, and to prevent federal listing under the Endangered Species Act. Popular fisheries are regularly stocked with hundreds of thousands of pounds of fish raised in Division hatcheries.

The Division's innovative habitat program leads North America in restoration efforts. Through Utah’s Watershed Restoration Initiative and with the help of over 100 partners, the state has restored and rehabilitated nearly 2.25 million acres of land statewide.

Conservation Plan for Greater Sage-grouse in Utah


Utah’s Conservation Plan for Greater Sage-grouse is designed to protect high-quality habitat, enhance impaired habitat and restore converted habitat to support conservation and restoration of the portion of the greater sage-grouse population within the State. The plan outlines efforts to eliminate threats to the species and negate the need for the listing of the species under the provisions of the federal Endangered Species Act. This plan balances conservation of Sage-grouse habitat with the economic and social needs of the residents of Utah through a coordinated program that provides for incentive-based programs for private lands and a reasonable and cooperative regulatory program for other state and federal lands.
