Rocky Mountain Wolf Project 2020 Update
We have an update on our friends over at the Rocky Mountain Wolf Project. Proposition 114, a ballot initiative directing the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission to develop a plan to introduce gray wolves onto the Western Slope of Colorado, passed on November 3, 2020. Proposition 114 directs the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission to:
- Develop a plan to reintroduce and manage gray wolves in Colorado by December 31, 2023, on designated lands west of the Continental Divide;
- Hold statewide hearings about scientific, economic, and social considerations;
- Periodically obtain public input to update the plan; and
- Use state funds to assist livestock owners in preventing conflicts with gray wolves and pay fair compensation for livestock losses.
Proposition 114 passing is a huge and important step forward but the work is not done. We will continue to donate a portion of the proceeds from each Wolf Tee/Hoodie sold directly to the Rocky Mountain Wolf Project as they work with Colorado Parks & Wildlife throughout this process.
