Short Description of Activity

Follow the wolf reintroduction issue by attending meetings, reading posts and articles, attending CPW Commission meetings, and attending Working Circles workshop.

Reflection/Evaluation

Sallie is considering joining the Southwest Colorado Wolf Cooperative-out of Durango- instead of Colorado Wolf Coalition (which is currently just listserve posts on wolf activity). CPW Commission is considering passing regulations to allow hazing of gray wolfs in livestock areas. Experts and Working Circles are OK with this, as part of coexistence toolkit. Both Robyn and Sallie attended virtually parts of the Working Circle workshop in Montrose. Good to be following the issue.
