Episode 5: The Experience of Living With Wolves
read the recap
For many in the Lower 48, the idea of living alongside wolves isn’t theoretical: it’s a practical reality. Residents of the Northern Rockies and the Upper Midwest have had Canis lupis as a neighbor for decades now and understand the values, concerns, and tradeoffs in a way that few others can. As Coloradans begin to head to the polls to determine the fate of Proposition 114, these communities can offer lessons and paradigms for what lies ahead should wolves eventually return to the Centennial State.
Panelists: Shane Doyle (Apsaalooke/Crow), an educational and cultural consultant; Denny Iverson, Rancher and Logger at Iverson Ranch (Montana) and Secretary of the Blackfoot Challenge; and Kim Skyelander, Associate Director of the Center for Collaborative Conservation at Colorado State University.
