Rocky Mountain Wolf Project calls for animal reintroduction amid pushback

From the Colorado Springs Independent:

If anyone is a leading authority on wolf reintroduction, it’s Mike Phillips. The conservation biologist first captured a wolf in Minnesota in 1980 and has since amassed decades of experience. His research has studied the gray wolf in the Northern Rockies, red wolves in the Southeast and Mexican gray wolves in the Southwest. He’s the co-author of The Wolves of Yellowstone, which details the reintroduction that he oversaw with the Yellowstone National Park Wolf Restoration Program. And more recently he co-authored Awakening Spirits: Wolves in the Southern Rockies, which, like his recent presentation in the Springs, advocates for reintroducing wolf populations to Colorado.
