Back in September, Colorado state officials released policy recommendations to provide more migration routes for the state’s declining big game populations while preserving as much land as possible.

The Big Game Migration and Wildlife Connectivity Policy Report offers recommendations for improving animal habitats and building migration routes for species like elk, moose and deer.

Michelle Cowardin, wildlife movement coordinator for Colorado Parks and Wildlife, joined Colorado Edition to discuss why more migration routes are needed.

As a radio producer, I help make the Colorado Edition program come to life. I help to schedule guests, produce interviews, edit audio, and write for our weekly newsletter.
I host and produce KUNC’s in-depth, regional newsmagazine Colorado Edition, which has me searching across our state for peculiar and impactful stories to bring to listeners, always with a focus on empowering the people who hear our show and speaking through them to our guests. I am also a big nerd about field recording and audio editing, my dedication to which I hope serves our listeners who care about audio as much as I do.
