Colorado provides residents and visitors with unmatched natural beauty and exceptional opportunities. These components drive our economy and contribute to our well-being. This is the Colorado way of life. Activists are seeking to destroy these values we hold dear through a misguided attempt to introduce wolves into the state.
The Ballot Measure
Initiative 107 will be on your ballot in 2020.
The measure will forcibly introduce wolves onto Colorado’s Western Slope against the advice of wildlife experts.
Existing wildlife, including threatened and endangered species, will be put in severe danger. Wolves prey on whatever they find and introduce diseases that are fatal to other species.
Wolves don’t recognize property boundaries and can range hundreds of miles pioneering new territories, creating conflicts with other animals and humans on both private and public land.
Wolves will pose a direct and serious threat to humans, livestock, and domestic pets.
Any perceived benefits of wolf introduction are temporary and are greatly offset by the long-term damage caused by wolves.
Wolf packs travel vast distances, and individual pack territories can cover 50-1,000 square miles.
Today, Colorado is home to some of North America’s most beloved elk and deer herds and a small but cherished population of moose.
Wolves have severely impacted elk and moose herds in the northern Rockies, even killing the last of Idaho’s caribou herd. As a result of careful management by our state game agency, elk, deer, moose, and other wildlife are thriving on the Western Slope.
Colorado agriculture is one of the state’s primary economic drivers, contributing billions of dollars to the state’s economy annually, and providing open space and habitat for Colorado wildlife.
Tourism is one of our state’s main draws. Many tourists visit Colorado to view our state’s natural beauty and abundant wildlife.
Wolves pass fatal diseases to other wildlife populations, kill wildlife, and prey on livestock and domestic pets.
The forcible introduction of wolves threatens the natural beauty that we all love so much about Colorado.
Wolves are already naturally expanding their range into Colorado as a result of the wolf introduction in the northern Rockies.
Support Coloradans Protecting Wildlife Vote NO on Wolf Introduction
Proponents of this measure do not have Colorado’s best interests in mind. They are out of state activists pushing a radical agenda that is not in line with Colorado values.
We need your help to protect Colorado’s natural beauty and wildlife.
