Researchers find that one of the effects of global warming is the shrinking size of warm-blooded creatures.
In what appears to be a surprising turn of events, while many US states have incentives to get more of their electricity from renewable energy, some Republican legislators in Wyoming are proposing to cut the state off its most abundance source - wind energy.
The mystery of the Yellowstone Supervolcano is on the road to being solved. Scientists are hard at work to reveal the secrets of the vast subterranean systems that fuel the famous Old Faithful geyser, and other hydrothermal vents at Wyoming’s Yellowstone National Park. Though a 'super-eruption' hasn’t occurred in 13,800 years, mapping out the area will allow scientists to better predict possible natural disasters. The last ‘super-eruption’ that took place resulted in the largest crater on earth.
After two decades of observation and collection of artworks, biologist Brandon Ballengée has now compiled exhibits to connect viewers and spectators with the current ecological paradigms, encouraging them to make a move for the environment.
The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) announced its intention to kill the wolf pack that has been terrorizing cattle in the Ferry County area.
Its mother frantically tried to save her fatally injured cub by dragging it to the side of the road, but to no avail. Roadkills in national parks are now a growing concern.
New boiling rivers, fumes and steams may suggest that the fericious super volcano might erupt this year and if it happens it can wipe out two thirds of the United States.
Researchers have learned a little more about how fast tyrannosaurs were, after examining dinosaur tracks preserved at Wyoming's Glenrock Paleon Museum. Experts estimate these large carnivores were able to keep up with their competition and out-run herbivorous prey.
The Senate recently passed legislation designating our nation's prairie-dwelling, wooly headed, hooved and wild "come-back kid" as our national mammal.

University of Kansas researchers recently published findings on 50 million-year-old rocks and their microbial remnants in a river formation that runs through Utah, Colorado and Wyoming. They say that for Mars, their study reveals some new clues to seek out.
Crocodiles roamed areas of Wyoming and Canada 50 million years ago, enjoying the temperate climates. But since these areas are so far from ocean warming effects, scientists wondered how they remained habitable for large aquatic reptiles.
