Why Wolf Reintroduction in Colorado Is Essential

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. Their absence is one of the reasons why the natural balance is slowly taking its toll on the landscape of Colorado. 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 western portion of Colorado offers public lands that are both remote and expansive making it a perfect place for wolves to thrive. But then, bringing back wolves in Colorado can only be made possible with teamwork and group efforts. This should not be a problem with Colorado being biologically viable but socially viable as well. Based on statistics, 60-70 percent of Coloradans support bringing back wolves in Colorado.

After gray wolves have been reintroduced in Yellowstone National Park, they proceed to expand and thrive in the area of the 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. One the link is complete, only then can wolf reintroduction have significant conservation and biological value.

Letting the public understand about the behavior of gray wolf, options to reestablish the species, and the ecology is one of the many efforts of the Defenders of Wildlife, that is a participating organization of The Rocky Mountain Wolf Project. This Project is made up of 20 organizations that are all focused on restoring the wolves to Colorado. For more information about these efforts, view here to learn about The Rocky Mountain Wolf Project.

One of the things that would help make wolf restoration in Colorado a success will be to show the public the significance of having wolves in the ecosystem. Looking into bedtime stories alone, you will come to observe how wolves are being portrayed in a bad light. It is essential to leave these stories in storybooks. A different story is essential for the successful reintroduction of wolves. The existence of wolves can only be better appreciated and understood with an accurate story about them.

In Colorado for thousands of years, wolves have always been essential wildlife beings. It is essential for future generations to experience what it is like to have wolves roaming around the Colorado landscape.
