If we are serious about saving thousands of at-risk species, we must invest in collaborative, on-the-ground solutions that match the magnitude of the wildlife crisis. The Recovering America’s Wildlife Act is the bipartisan solution we need.

Why RAWA matters

to Colorado


Colorado Mountain Club members value the natural beauty of flora and fauna throughout the state and strongly support the conservation of natural resources and wildlife across the country. Birding, wildlife viewing and fishing are common club activities as stand-alone recreation opportunities as well as scenic benefits when hiking, climbing or skiing in Colorado. By protecting wildlife and their natural habitats through the RAWA bill, we will also help protect scenic landscapes and unique recreation experiences for generations to come. — Colorado Mountain Club, CO-OP Member
