Wolves are one of the most misunderstood, maligned and hated animals to roam the earth, yet revered to the point of mythological status. My guest Mike Phillips is one of the world?s foremost experts on why wolf restoration is critical to balancing western ecosystems and the reality of co-existing with wolves is far from the perpetuated livestock industry?s fear-based myths. At issue is diffusing the grossly misunderstood myths of people, livestock and wolves co-existing, that this challenge can and has been mitigated with a variety of reasonable measures. The Rocky Mountain Wolf Project seeks to re-establish wolves in Western Colorado, creating a connectivity corridor for North American wolf population all the way from Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan through Canada and Alaska, and down the Rocky Mountains into Mexico. It would be difficult to overestimate the biological and conservation value of this achievement and benefits in habitat restoration.
