CORE Act Will Conserve and Restore Wildlife Habitat, Safeguard Sporting Traditions

DENVER -- The reintroduction of the Colorado Outdoor Recreation and Economy (CORE) Act is good news for wildlife, public lands, hunters and anglers, and local communities across Colorado. The legislation would conserve roughly 400,000 acres of public lands in the San Juan Mountains and the Thompson Divide.
“Hunters and anglers have seen first-hand how degraded wildlife habitat is negatively impacting the health of wildlife and our sporting traditions. Passing legislation like the CORE Act is imperative to conserving healthy wildlife habitat and restoring lands that have been degraded by impacts from climate change,” said Aaron Kindle, director of sporting advocacy for the National Wildlife Federation. “The CORE Acts protects some of the finest fish and game habitat remaining in Colorado. I’m grateful that Senator Bennet and Representative Neguse have listened to local community leaders, who have long advocated for the conservation of these very special areas.”
