Laramie, Wy – The Endangered Species Act has a provision to encourage landowners to help threatened or endangered species. It's called Safe Harbors. And the first agreement in the region involves some private property near Laramie. The landowner allowed scientists to put the nearly extinct Wyoming Toads and tadpoles on the property.
