March 14, 2019 /3BL Media/ - Freeport-McMoRan recently received the Wildlife Habitat Council Mammals Award for their Bighorn Sheep management program. The award recognizes excellence in corporate conservation in wildlife habitat enhancement and restoration, and conservation education.

Freeport-McMoRan’s Morenci mine works with Arizona Game and Fish on its Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep management program, which relocates sheep from areas of robust populations to re-establish the native species to their historic habitats.

The program aims to ensure sustainable population levels for hunting and wildlife viewing, while reducing potential wildlife-vehicle collisions and other human-wildlife conflicts in the area.
