Integrative Biology Professor Diana Tomback, along with Summer Merrell and Chariss Thexton (Biology undergraduate independent study students in the Tomback Forest Ecology Lab), attended the February Colorado Wildlife Commission meeting, at the Adams County Fairgrounds. This meeting was the last opportunity for public comment on the Draft Colorado Wolf Restoration and Management Plan that had been released in December by Colorado Parks and Wildlife. Tomback, Summer, and Chariss each provided two-minute comments in front of the commission members concerning specific issues regarding the reintroduction or wolf management in the draft plan.  About 60 other members of the public (including students and faculty from the University of Denver and University of Colorado Boulder) a number of ranchers, and individuals from various non-profit organizations also provided comments.  The meeting was recorded and is available on YouTube.
