For The Media
The prairie dog holds a special place in the hearts of Coloradans. In fact, nearly 6 out of 10 Colorado voters oppose poisoning prairie dogs on public lands.
More importantly, however, is the critical role that prairie dogs play in the conservation of Colorado’s prairies.
The Prairie Dog Coalition is an alliance of non-profit organizations, concerned citizens, and scientists dedicated to the protection of prairie dogs and restoration of prairie dog ecosystems.
All too often lost in the discussions around prairie dogs is the vital connection between the survival of the prairie dog and the preservation of our prairie ecosystem – one of the most endangered ecosystems in the world.
As articulated by well-known anthropologist and Prairie Dog Coalition member Dr. Jane Goodall, “Nine different wildlife species depend on the prairie dog and their habitat for their survival. The prairie dog is a critical component to healthy North American grasslands.”
