INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

We’ve just learned that wolves have returned to Colorado—for the first time in nearly 70 years! Sightings, tracks and scat all indicate that wolves are back and that they may even have wolf pups!

We hope that the Governor and wildlife agencies will take this time to celebrate wolves' own achievement of returning to their ancestral home in the Southern Rockies.

Colorado's state wildlife agency is expected to recognize that these wolves are federally protected and take appropriate measures for their safety.

Please encourage tolerance and co-existence as wolves are a necessary part of our western heritage, our ecosystems, and they represent unique economic opportunity for Colorado's flagging economy.

We’re scared because the anti-wolf forces will be mobilizing and pressuring their elected officials to have this pioneering wolf group eliminated and wolf poachers will be waiting opportunistically.
I am inspired and amazed at the journey these wolves must have taken to get from the Yellowstone region to Colorado. To make it to Colorado safely they had to cross a landscape fragmented by development and mined with predator-killing devices, while escaping hunter’s guns and avoiding rancher’s livestock.


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
