The Colorado Wildlife Council, formed by the state legislature in 1998, was conceived and developed by a diverse coalition of conservationists, outdoor recreationists, hunters, fishers, farmers, ranchers, and community leaders coming together to ensure a bright future for Colorado’s wildlife.
By statute, the Council’s mission is to oversee the design of a public education program to inform the general public about the benefits of wildlife, wildlife management, and wildlife-related recreational opportunities in Colorado, specifically hunting and fishing.
The Colorado Wildlife Council’s mission is to oversee the design of a comprehensive media-based public information program to educate the public about the benefits of wildlife, wildlife management, and wildlife-related recreational opportunities in Colorado, specifically hunting and fishing. The program is funded by a $1.50 surcharge (Wildlife Management Public Education Fund) on each hunting and fishing license sold. Council members, working closely with an advertising firm, help guide a multimedia educational campaign to promote these messages. Recent successes include Hug a Hunter/Angler and the most recent campaign This is the Wild Life.
Council members contribute their professional expertise on a volunteer basis and are expected to attend 6-8 in-person/zoom meetings (4-6 hours each) per year, attend 4-6 zoom calls (1-2 hours each) in the alternate months, spend time reviewing meeting materials (1 hour), provide input between meetings on the campaign and represent the Council and its mission to partners.
Council members should have a strong interest in communicating the benefits of wildlife, wildlife management, and hunting and fishing to the public. These are unpaid positions, but Council members are reimbursed for travel expenses, and members who volunteer 48 or more hours are eligible for a free state park pass.
