The Shoshone National Forest covers more than 2.5 million acres on the eastern flank of Yellowstone in Wyoming. The Shoshone has some of the finest wild lands and wildlife habitat in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. The Forest Service has been working on a new management plan for more than ten years, a process we have been involved in since its onset. After the Plan was released earlier this year, we helped lead a number of conservation partners, friends from the community of Cody, Wyoming, and members of the Greater Yellowstone Coalition, to overturn some harmful 11th hour changes that reduced protections for some crucial wildlife areas. We detailed the importance of these areas for grizzly bears, bighorn sheep, elk, and mule deer and for the outstanding wilderness characteristics of these lands. 

Earlier this week, we received notice from the Forest Service that our efforts were successful! They restored protection for Franc's Peak, the Wood River, and the DuNoir Special Management Unit. Additionally, more than 900,000 acres of the forest are now off limits to oil and gas drilling. This is a wonderful outcome; the result of some very hard work by dedicated public servants of the Forest Service and thousands of Greater Yellowstone Coalition supporters and partners. We are on the verge of a great victory in Wyoming for the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
