Over 90 percent of Coloradans and millions of visitors go to outdoor areas each year to see wildlife. As our population grows and land gets developed, the natural areas in which animals live shrink daily. Every hour in Colorado, ten acres are developed. That’s equivalent to building a new Denver airport every four months!
Fortunately, there’s a way we can all come together to create a bright future for wildlife.
