Tomback on introducing wolves back to Colorado

A photographic exhibit that advocates the reintroduction of wolves into western Colorado will debut this Saturday at the Aspen Airport. According to Diana Tomback, Professor of Integrative Biology and a member of the science advisory committee for the Rocky Mountain Wolf Project, which is sponsoring the event, the exhibit serves a two-fold, inter-related purpose. “The first is to document the lives of wolves to show that they are not the evil creatures they have been made out to be throughout history and, second, to talk about how well suited Western Colorado is for wolf reintroduction,” Tomback said. “There is sufficient public land and a more than sufficient prey base to support wolves here. There are an estimated 750,000 elk and deer in Colorado, the highest number of any Western state.”
