Join Rocky Mountain Wild, Defenders of Wildlife, and the Denver Zoo on March 7th for Wolverine Night, featuring the award-winning PBS Nature documentary Wolverine: Chasing the Phantom, followed by a panel discussion of the recent proposal to protect wolverines under the Endangered Species Act and the possibility of future reintroduction to Colorado.

Wolverines can climb 5000 vertical feet in the middle of winter in less than 2 hours, but these fearless animals are not invincible. Citing threats posed to their habitat by climate change, the US Fish and Wildlife Service recently proposed to protect the species under the Endangered Species Act. A related proposal to designate Colorado as an experimental population area for wolverines enables Colorado Parks and Wildlife to renew conversations about reintroducing these elusive animals to the state.Get a glimpse into the lives of these mysterious, cold-loving creatures and learn more about the potential for a wolverine reintroduction to Colorado. Don’t miss it!

This event is free and open to the public, but RSVPs are required. Please RSVP to Caitlin at CBalchBurnett@defenders.org by March 1st. Tickets will not be available at the door.
