Efforts to Restore Wolves in Colorado
Thousands of years ago, wolves have been shown to inhabit the landscape of Colorado. However, in the past 70 years, Colorado wolves have been absent. That is why there is a growing effort to bring back the heritage of having wolves in Colorado. The natural balance of Colorado’s landscape has been affected negatively with their absence. The reason for this is that they are considered as key species of the local environment. With efforts of The Rocky Mountain Wolf Project and other organizations, wolves in Colorado can be brought back to restore the natural balance of Colorado for the present and future generations. For more details on the efforts to restore wolves in Colorado, make sure to read this article until the end.
The wolf population can thrive in the remote and expansive public lands of Western Colorado. Nonetheless, before wolf reintroduction can take place, wolves still need the help of humans. This project should not call in more problems with Colorado being both biologically and socially viable. Based on statistics, 60-70 percent of Coloradans support bringing back wolves in Colorado.
With the reintroduction of gray wolves in Yellowstone National Park, gray wolves have come to occupy the entire Northern Rockies. However, they are yet to be seen in the Southern Rockies of the western portion of Colorado. The Rocky Mountain wolf conservation project has not been completed because of this area that serves as a missing link through them all. Only with restoration of Colorado wolves can all North American population be reconnected starting from Alaska to Mexico. Wolf reintroduction would only be significant in terms of its conservation and biological value when this is completed.
Defenders of Wildlife is one of the many participants of this site that help to increase the understanding of the public about the ecology and behavior of and options to restore gray wolves. Twenty organizations make up the project to ensure that wolves are restored in Colorado. When you want to learn about The Rocky Mountain Wolf Project, you can check this link here.
The first thing that would help people get a better grasp about wolf restoration is to show them the implications of having wolves living in the ecosystem. For a long time, wolves have always been shown to be negative species from bedtime stories and the like. It is time that these stories be changed. For wolf restoration to take place, a different story must be told. To help people better understand about wolves, a more accurate story must be told.
Wolves have an essential role to play in the wildlife of Colorado for the past couple of years. Future generations should be given the opportunity to see wolves roaming around the landscape of Colorado.
