Elk NetworkColorado Releases Report on Big Game Winter Range and Migration Corridors

General | June 5, 2020

Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) compiled a status report that will help improve the conservation of winter range and migration corridors for elk, deer, moose and other wildlife.

“Our deer and elk herds are an important part of Colorado’s outdoor identity; because of the amount of work CPW puts in conserving wildlife, we have really high-quality herds – in fact, we manage the largest elk herds in North America. We are committed to protecting these animals by maintaining habitat connectivity and making sure we’re removing migration barriers that may currently exist,” said Casey Cooley, CPW forest habitat coordinator. “The report highlights CPW’s long-term goals: habitat protection and winter range restoration. This report is a tool that will help us move forward in conserving big game and their habitats.”
