The Rocky Mountain Wolf Project is trying to build public support for reintroducing wolves to western Colorado. Some of the faces will be familiar to those who followed the wolf reintroduction program to Yellowstone National Park and Central Idaho.
Members of the groupís science advisory team include Ed Bangs (formerly with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service), Doug Smith of Yellowstone National Park, Mike Phillips of the Turner Endangered Species Fund, and Carter Niemeyer (formerly with USDA Wildlife Services, then with FWS).
Environmental groups supporting the project include Defenders of Wildlife, Western Watersheds Project, Natural Resources Defense Council, Wild Earth Guardians, National Wolfwatchers Coalition, Colorado Sierra Club, and the Center for Biological Diversity.
