Speaker Announcements

Sristi Kamal is from India and grew up in a biodiversity hotspot with elephants, rhinos, leopards and tigers which sparked a childhood and lifelong passion for wildlife. She currently works for Defenders of Wildlife in their NW office of the Field Conservation Program. In her current role, she works to protect imperiled and native species in Oregon and their habitats, including wolves.

Sristi will talk about Oregon’s Wolves: Conflict and Coexistence—an update on the status of wolves in Oregon, Oregon’s wolf management policy and current instances of conflict and where we go from here.

John Murtaugh of Defenders of Wildlifebrings a lifetime of passion for wolf recovery to the Rockies and Plains as he works to restore wolves to the region. By working with stakeholders across the spectrum, he works to create a strong coalition of support, ensuring that wolves and people can coexist in the west.  

John will update us on Colorado’s Gray Wolf Reintroduction. In 2020, Colorado voters directed the Colorado Parks and Wildlife agency to begin a wolf reintroduction by the end of 2023. Now, the state has set forth a plan and has begun a process of advisement from key stakeholders, technical experts, and the public.
