Stacy Plemmons' Zoom Meeting - Shared screen with speaker view
I'm here and can chime in as needed.
Becky made no mention of "climate change" as a reason to preserve all wildlife! I have also heard that wolves have helped keep herds healthy by culling the weak and diseased.
Will you please ask your question again?
Meeting of the minds, engagement
Prey availability vs livestock depredations
I'm clapping behind my screen
During the research and surveys performed, was there any feedback on the perceived success of the wolf reintroduction in Yellowstone?
Where can I find data from states with stable wolf populations (i.e. ecological impacts, costs vs. revenue?)
If wolves are reintroduced to CO and that population retains Federal listing protection, ESA Section 6 funds should become available for the species as long as active management/research is happening. Bringing in stakeholders from various fields (regulatory, development, government, recreational, environmental) to work together on developing the reintroduction plan can help quell some of the concerns of those not in support of the issue and also make sure that their concerns are heard, noted, and responded to.
Rebecca mentioned the need to have both sides heard. How do you achieve agreement to listen deeply, and be willing to be changed?
….As opposed to just waiting our turn to talk?
Considering that one of the prevalent arguments against wolf reintroduction is human safety concerns, what environmental or ecologic circumstances can lead to more aggressive behavior against humans and how can we mitigate those?
Have federal agencies they been asked to help with getting public input, or help hold public meetings since the wolves would be on BLM and USFS lands? They do have lot of contacts.
Where and when is the Wednesday webinar? I assume questions regarding data and information is more suited for that meeting?

Curious to know what research is showing in regards to the prey availability for wolves. Are the elk and mule deer populations sufficient enough to sustain another apex predator? If not, then the likelihood of livestock depredations is much higher. Would livestock restitution for wolves be mirrored off that of the mountain lion?
Everyone is welcome Wedneday at noon. https://zoom.us/j/494943309pwd=SmtTUDYzTlZrcVBhblVLRmdvbVh6dz09
More information on potential wolf restoration to CO that might address some of the questions in the chat: https://sites.warnercnr.colostate.edu/centerforhumancarnivorecoexistence/people-predators/#colorado-wolf
Great questions from Rylee, Caly and the group. Answered some of my questions I had as well. Thanks for the links to the meeting.
Very good presentation, thank you.
