Ep. 21: Restoring Wolves to Colorado with Rob Edward and Jason Blevins
The last gray wolf in Colorado was shot in 1945, but in the recent election voters in the state approved a proposition directing wildlife authorities to bring them back. Supported by a well-funded campaign, the initiative countered powerful opposition from ranchers and farmers and got critical support from urban and suburban voters. To understand how this happened and what this means for the survival of the species, Gary Strieker talks with Rob Edward, the strategic advisor of the Rocky Mountain Wolf Action Fund, which organized the initiative, and Jason Blevins, a reporter who covered the campaign for the Colorado Sun, an online news outlet based in Denver.
