The Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC), the state board that approves drilling permits and regulates the oil and gas industry, is undergoing important changes that will impact Colorado’s wildlife.

The COGCC was previously directed to “foster” development of the state’s oil and gas resources and to balance energy development with impacts to public health, the environment, and wildlife. Legislation passed last year (SB 19-181) changed the COGCC’s mission to specify that energy development must be done safely and require that the COGCC protect wildlife from oil and gas impacts when issuing permits.

However, the important details of how this will be done is being considered right now and the COGCC needs to hear from people who care about birds and wildlife.

Join us for this free, one-hour webinar—organized by conservation and hunting/angling groups—where you’ll hear from local experts. They will give you the details on what’s happening and provide guidance on how you can make a difference.

This is a time-sensitive and important opportunity to ensure a better future for Colorado’s wildlife. Please join us!
