Gray wolves (Canis lupus) have been largely absent from Colorado for nearly 80 years. With recent wolf sightings in Northern Colorado and an upcoming statewide vote on Proposition 114 that would reintroduce wolves to the state, Canis lupus appear to be on the verge of return. To inform the conversation about the potential restoration of wolves to Colorado, it is important to hear from indigenous peoples about their perspectives on wolves.

The Center for Human-Carnivore Coexistence (CHCC), an academic institution housed at CSU, is focused on integrating transformative science, education, and outreach to minimize conflict and facilitate coexistence between humans and carnivores.
