CEO Jackson Hole Wildlife Safaris and proud member of the Wyoming Untrapped Advisory Board
“Creative conservationist and National Geographic Emerging Explorer Asher Jay uses groundbreaking design, multimedia arts, literature, and lectures to inspire global action to combat illegal wildlife trafficking, advance environmental issues, and promote humanitarian causes… A staunch supporter of animal welfare, wildlife conservation and sustainable development, she found herself using her artistic prowess and writing to raise awareness through unique collaborations with scientists, non-profits and other kindred change agents. “The unique power of art is that it can transcend differences, connect with people on a visceral level, and compel action,” she says.”
She now brings her creative talent and voice to Wyoming to raise awareness about the negative impact trapping has on people, pets, and wildlife. In addition to speaking on compassionate wildlife management and coexistence, Asher Jay will be unveiling a new, donor-commissioned piece for Wyoming Untrapped.
Traps can be found almost anywhere on public land and thus create an unsafe environment for people, pets, and wildlife. Traps kill thousands of furbearing animals and predators every year in Wyoming, including foxes, wolves, coyotes, American martens, weasels, and even bobcats. Collateral damage too often includes ‘non-target’ animals like domestic dogs. Asher Jay will be breaking new ground in the dialogue surrounding trapping in Wyoming by speaking on the role of compassion in the way we manage and coexist with our world-class Wyoming wildlife.
