Agricultural Water Use in Utah

Wildlife Resources

This year's record-breaking snowfall has pushed wildlife into areas where they are more likely to encounter humans. The topic of Human-Wildlife Interactions is very broad. It includes subjects like wildlife damage to personal property, creating wildlife habitat on your property, and even the impacts of humans on wildlife.
