Wyoming is best known for incredible wild spaces like the Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, and Devils Tower. However, this state is home to more than just craggy peaks and expansive forests; unbeknownst to many, Wyoming is also home to a breathtaking desert ecosystem known as the Red Desert. This high altitude desert in south-central Wyoming is the largest unfenced area in the continental United States. In this 10-million-acre expanse, you can find everything from colorful badlands to the United States' biggest living sand dunes. That could be changing, though, with the current administration's plan to develop more public lands for oil and gas exploitation.
The short film Unfenced explores what's at stake with this threatened ecosystem, and the many conservation groups banding together to keep the Red Desert untouched.
