The Colorado Wildlife and Transportation Alliance was formed as a result of the 2017 Wildlife and Transportation Summit in Silverthorne. In 2018, the Alliance was established as a statewide partnership between the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW), federal, tribal, academic, nonprofit, biologist, and engineering partners.
The Alliance is a collaborative effort with a vision to improve human safety while fully integrating wildlife movement needs into Colorado’s transportation system. This includes measures that institutionalize wildlife considerations into transportation projects, and build partnerships and awareness to protect wildlife movements across the landscape, with the ultimate goal of reducing wildlife-vehicle collisions while maintaining wildlife populations.
