Mission and Vision

About the Alliance
Mission and Vision

The Colorado Wildlife and Transportation Alliance was formed as a result of the 2017 Wildlife and Transportation Summit in Silverthorne. In 2018, the Alliance was established as a statewide partnership between the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW), federal, tribal, academic, nonprofit, biologist, and engineering partners.

OUR MISSION is to provide safe passage for people and wildlife in Colorado.

OUR VISION is to have a collaborative effort to improve human safety while fully integrating wildlife movements into Colorado’s transportation system. This will include measures that institutionalize wildlife considerations into transportation projects, build partnerships and awareness to protect wildlife movements across the landscape, and reduce wildlife-vehicle collisions while maintaining wildlife populations.
