Colorado Parks and Wildlife issues science-based Big Game Winter Range and Migration Corridors Report

On May 5 Colorado Parks and Wildlife issued its “2020 Status Report: Big Game Winter Range and Migration Corridors.”  This report was required by the Governor in his Executive Order last August (D 2019 011).  The next report will address policy.

CWF’s president Robin Knox said: “We commend the Colorado Department of Natural Resources and Colorado Parks and Wildlife for their continued focus on big game migration corridor conservation, in keeping with Colorado’s executive order and the Interior Department’s secretarial order. This report is a testament to the tireless work of Colorado’s wildlife managers and professionals in documenting the behavior of Colorado’s big game species over the last several decades. With one of the largest elk herds in the country, and a deer population that is struggling to maintain its numbers, the report provides a great foundation to move forward with collaborative planning efforts that safeguard Colorado’s big game herds, migratory corridors and important wildlife habitats, as well as Colorado’s outdoor legacy.”
