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.
