There are tons of things you can do today to protect endangered and imperiled species and their habitats.
Join us at The Alliance Center on Tuesday, May 14 and take all these actions with the assistance of Rocky Mountain Wild staff!
When: Tuesday, May 14, 3:00 – 5:00 pm
Where: The Alliance Center, Centennial Room, 1536 Wynkoop St, Denver, CO 80202
Sponsor: The Talbot-Heindl Experience
Not local? You can still take action! Here are some of the actions we’ll be taking:
- Learn more about our region’s endangered species by checking out our Key Species page or attending other Colorado Endangered Species Week events.
- Sign our petition to protect Gunnison sage-grouse critical habitat.
- Sign on as a supporter of wildlife crossing structures in Colorado to help species cross the road.
- Submit a public comment opposing the Trump Administration’s proposed national wolf delisting. Use Endangered Species Coalition’s webpage to take action today. This action’s deadline has been extended to July 15!
- Talk to your member of Congress about protecting endangered species. Use Endangered Species Coalition’s How to Advocate website to help.
- Purchase a special Colorado Endangered Species Week bat tee-shirt designed by Julie Kitzes to support our bat research.
- Adopt a pika to help fund our Front Range Pika Project. You’ll receive an adorable plush pika (filled with environmentally-friendly recycled plastic) and an adoption e-certificate.
- Sign up to be a citizen scientist with Front Range Pika Project – a citizen science volunteer program designed to collect data on the potential impacts of climate change on the American pika. You can volunteer with the Traditional Front Range Pika Project, Rocky Mountain National Park Expansion, or the White River National Forest Expansion (the project with the most need at this time).
- Sign up to be a citizen scientist with Colorado Corridors Project. As a volunteer citizen scientist, you will visit the I-70 Vail Pass site, learn more about the species we are studying, and assist CCP staff in camera trap maintenance.
- Create a homemade zine to show others about imperiled or endangered species in Colorado and send it to the Denver Zine Library for others to read (Denver Zine Library, PO Box 13826, Denver, CO 80201). Zines are an excellent and low-cost way to tell people about something you care about. Plus, here in Denver, we have the Denver Zine Library that houses and exhibits zines in their collection! Chris went to the Zine Library to see if they had any zines about the plight of Colorado endangered species, and they didn’t, so this is a perfect action to take.
