This episode of BHA’s Podcast & Blast was recorded at New Belgium Brewing in Fort Collins, Colorado! We’re talking wildlife migration corridors, wildlife crossings and the future of Western wildlife with Colorado’s best and brightest. The numbers are sobering: 3,000 wildlife and vehicle collisions per year in Colorado, 600 collisions in one stretch of Highway 9 between Kremmling and Silverthorne alone, human lives lost, life-changing injuries sustained, millions of dollars in damages to vehicles, and thousands of deer, elk, moose, black bears, bobcats and other wildlife slaughtered. Colorado’s economy is booming, with more people moving in every day – and more traffic on more roads. This makes Colorado, one of the most beautiful and wildlife-rich states in the American West, the perfect place to pioneer new solutions to the problem. Join Hal as he interviews Dan Prenzlow, director of Colorado Parks and Wildlife, Jessica Myklebust of Colorado Department of Transportation, and Luke Schafer, wildlife warrior of the West Slope from Conservation Colorado, about problem-solving for wildlife and human beings on an epic scale and building a future where we all can thrive.
