October 8 : Our next Living with Wildlife presentation on October 8 will feature Brian Holmes, CDOW Conservation Biologist, on the Black-footed Ferret Recovery Project.  This project is an interesting model for a species that was thought to be extinct until a small colony was discovered in WY and bred in captivity to produce stock for returning to the wild.  Unfortunately, the ferret is dependent on the prairie dog, and they have been attacked by plague in CO this year, so a great many of the reintroduced ferrets have been lost. 626-4496
