CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) ā€” One of Wyoming’s most outspoken environmental groups is disbanding.

The board of the Laramie-based Biodiversity Conservation Alliance voted Thursday to call it quits. Board President Ken Driese said Monday the group has been having fundraising difficulties and that four staff members are losing their jobs.

Biodiversity Conservation Alliance got its start in 1988 as a group called Friends of the Bow and advocated for conservation issues in southeast Wyoming’s Medicine Bow National Forest. The group changed its name twice over the years, as it took on more of a statewide focus.

Lately the Biodiversity Conservation Alliance has been speaking out against certain gas and uranium development projects in southern Wyoming.

The group’s demise leaves the Wyoming Outdoor Council as the only statewide environmental group based in Wyoming.
