I live in a “small” town on the Front Range in CO. Residential development is booming at an insane rate here — there are at least 6 massive neighborhoods that have popped up in the last 2 years within only a 3 mile radius of my house. 4 of the 6 neighborhoods were built directly in the middle of native grassland that is an essential part of the elk migration path, despite cries of warning from environmentalists…. And now people wonder why they have mountain lion, bear, and elk in their backyards. It absolutely kills me to see what we are doing to our planet, and my heart breaks for the wildlife I see every day paying the price.
