Wyoming is keeping an eye on a project in Idaho. Called the Big Wood River Project, which takes place in central Idaho, the project is a collaboration involving conservation groups, ranchers and game managers. The project was developed a few years ago to protect sheep grazing in the area from being attacked by wolves, but in a way that keeps the wolves safe, too.

Trained field technicians use non-lethal methods to keep wolves away from the estimated 13,000 sheep that will move through the valley over the summer. Jesse Timberlake with Defenders of Wildlife coordinates the project with the support of local ranchers. He outlines this year's challenges.
