How to advocate for wolves in Colorado right now

Last month, Rocky Mountain Wild partnered with Endangered Species Coalition, WildEarth Guardians, and Patagonia Denver to host a Wolves of Colorado Speaker Panel with John Murtaugh (Defenders of Wildlife) and Karin Vardaman (Working Circle). Here are the resources from that event that can help you advocate for wolves right now.

Free public transportation in the Denver metro area (and other areas in Colorado) all August

Throughout August, public transportation in the Denver metro area and other towns across Colorado will be completely free for the Zero Fare for Better Air initiative! The free fare program is part of the Programs to Reduce Ozone Through Increased Transit bill that passed earlier this year.

Even if you typically don’t use public transportation, consider doing so for the month of August. Let’s show RTD and our lawmakers that reduced fares would mean more fares and less pollution from traffic.

BIPOC Experiences on Colorado Public Lands

Next 100 Colorado is collecting information about the experiences of Black, Indigenous, and people of color on public lands in Colorado. They hope to capture the good, the bad, and everything in between, in service of better understanding the experiences of BIPOC in our publicly owned spaces. And, if needed, creating or modifying policies to make our outdoors more inclusive of all people. Please help us get the word out about this effort, and encourage your BIPOC friends, colleagues, and family to share their experiences, whether recent or from the past. More information and a link to the collection form are available here.

  • Join the CU Boulders researchers studying Barn Swallows by helping look for colonies or individual pairs to study. This study requires a one-time sound recording session of Barn Swallow alarm calls (approximately 15 minutes). If you have Barn Swallow nests on your property or have seen nests elsewhere, please contact Angela Medina Gardia at angela.medinagarcia@colorado.edu. You can also enter your nest observations in the Swallow Tracker.
  • Join Grouse Grooves as a citizen scientist! Grouse Grooves uses trail cameras to monitor leks in the hopes of understanding when the birds use the lek, how that differs between leks or throughout the season, to help them determine when these sensitive areas need to be protected. Your science task: classify photos that have been marked as having grouse in them and determine how many male and how many female are present! Bonus: what are those males doing?
  • Join the Bumble Bee Watch. We need volunteers to submit photos or videos of bumble bee nest sightings. The bumble bee nest sighting can come from anywhere within North America. An ideal sighting would include an image of the bumble bee (to determine the species), a GPS location (to be used in future habitat analyses), a description of the location and materials of the nest (i.e. in my garden, underground or in a woodpile), and, if possible, a video of the nest, surroundings, and activity.
  • Join Journey North as a citizen scientist! Journey North provides an easy entry point to citizen science, with simple protocols, strong online support, and immediate results. Reported sightings are mapped in real-time as waves of migrations move across the continent. People report sightings from the field, view maps, take pictures, and leave comments.
  • Join Polar Bears International as a Field Ambassador. Field Ambassadors share their knowledge about polar bears with tourists aboard Tundra Buggies® as part of a program designed to nurture leadership in women. They tell stories. They answer questions. And, once they’re back home, they continue to spread the word about sea-ice loss and its effect on polar bears everywhere they can.
  • Participate in Neighborhood Nestwatch and monitor color-banded birds in your own backyard and report observations to the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center. Participants must agree to participate for a minimum of three years, committing approximately one hour of time per week for observation and reporting. Participants must live within 50 miles of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Sites are based on location, property type (urban vs rural) and other factors. There is no experience necessary and training is provided during the initial site visit.
  • In the CrowdMag project, NOAA will explore whether digital magnetometers built in modern mobile smartphones can be used as scientific instruments. With CrowdMag mobile apps, phones all around the world send magnetometer data to them. At their server, they check the quality of the magnetic data and make data available to the public as aggregate maps and charts. The two long-term goals of this project are to create models of Earth’s time changing magnetic field by combining crowdsourced magnetic data with data collected by ships, aircrafts, and satellites and to map local magnetic noise sources (for e.g. power transformer and iron pipes) to improve accuracy of the magnetic navigation systems. Become a citizen scientist and join their research on the Earth’s geomagnetic field.
  • Wildwatch Kenya seeks to count, identify, and track the giraffes in conservation field sites, along with the other animals that share the habitat, to better understand the behavior, movements, and population numbers of the wildlife found there. Citizens scientists are being called to help researchers look through the tens of thousands of photos taken by trail cameras placed in strategic spots throughout the sites. The information gathered from these photos will help them and the local communities develop plans to help save the animals.
