In our premiere episode, we’ll discuss wolf-related policy and the latest ecological and social science research pertaining to wolf ecology, interactions with big game and livestock, and public perceptions of wolves. For generations, wolves and humans have navigated a fraught dynamic of coexistence. So what does the science tell us about the pros and cons of wolves returning to our backyard? And, if wolves are in Colorado’s future, how can society have an effective dialogue that uses science to inform policy and management?
On Thursday, September 24, we'll chat with special guests Stewart Breck, Research Wildlife Biologist, USDA Wildlife Services; Kevin Crooks, Director of the Center for Human-Carnivore Coexistence and Professor in the Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology at CSU; and Rebecca Niemiec, Assistant Professor in the Department of Human Dimensions of Natural Resources at CSU. The trio will present the latest research on wolves and answer your questions live during a moderated Q&A session.
