Wolves at the door

Wolves at the door

The Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission will be hosting the first of three online sessions on the topic of wolf reintroduction Wed., April 28, from 6-8 p.m.

The purpose of the sessions is to provide the Commission as well as members of the public an understanding of what it means to have wolves on the landscape and how experts from other states have approached wolf management. The first session, “Wolf Management and Wolf-Prey Interactions,” will include wolf experts Diane Boyd (Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks, retired) and Jon Horne (Idaho Fish and Game) discussing their real-world experience with the apex predators. The presentations will be followed by a Q&A.

Pre-registration is required for the live presentation. Sessions will be recorded and available for later viewing as well.

There will be two more educational sessions – one in May and one in June – with dates yet to be determined. These presentations will cover reintroduction and conflict management. 

Colorado voters passed Proposition 114 last November, which directed CPW to re-introduce gray wolves to areas of the Western Slope. Under the new law, CPW must submit a formal plan to begin the process of restoring and managing gray wolves in Colorado no later than Dec. 31, 2023.
