F.E. Warren AFB, Wyo. – Shawna Barry, 90th Civil Engineer Squadron natural resources assistant, feeds an American pronghorn fawn here as part of Peninsular Pronghorn Recovery Plan based at the Northwest Biological Research Center in Baja California Sur, Mexico. Wyoming has the largest population of American pronghorn, making it the natural focus of the NBRC’s efforts to relocate antelope to under-populated regions. F.E. Warren is home to a unique semi-domesticated population of pronghorn antelope – the only known “urban” herd. After several generations, the descendants of these F.E. Warren fawns will be used to establish founding populations of American pronghorns in Mexico, restoring this subspecies to regions of its former range. F.E. Warren aids pronghorn recovery effort
