Coloradans to Deliver 200,000 Signatures Backing Wolf Reintroduction Initiative for 2020 Ballot

DENVER— Colorado citizens will submit more than 200,000 signatures on Tuesday morning to the Secretary of State in support of a 2020 ballot measure to reintroduce wolves. This initiative represents the first time that U.S. voters would be empowered to vote directly on the reintroduction of an endangered species.

Colorado is the last remaining state in the Rocky Mountains where wolves have not yet been reintroduced. Wolf reintroduction restores a natural balance and is important to the conservation of numerous other species.

What: Activists will submit signatures and deliver statements on the need for Colorado to restore wolves to their historic range. There will be an opportunity for photography, three speakers providing brief remarks, and brief questions from media.

When: Tuesday, December 10, 2019 at 10 a.m. MST. Cameras may set up beginning 9:30 a.m.

Where: Colorado Secretary of State’s office
1700 Broadway
Aspen Room, 3rd floor
Denver, CO

Who: Rocky Mountain Wolf Action Fund
