A direct connection and responsibility to the land comes first and foremost. With a commitment to regenerative ecology as our central operating principle, we have created a very particular niche for ourselves. We focus on building and maintaining relationships with landholders, family farms and an array of diverse community stakeholders.
WE DID IT!
Save Colorado's Prairie Dogs and Tindakan in concert with so many tenacious and devoted resident wildlife advocates from Longmont and surrounding communities and others who care about our natural heritage, saw to it that an ordinance providing greater protections for prairie dogs and by extension the myriad of flora and fauna species that depend on this beautiful animal, are given greater protections and a better opportunity at being relocated, should development encroach on their homes.
It wasn't easy, but we stuck together and because of five amazing city council members- Aren Rodriguez, Polly Christensen, Joan Peck and Tim Waters including the Honorable Mayor Brian Bagley; with a 5-2 vote, an ordinance that does not unfairly inhibit any one party was put into law! This ordinance ensures social responsibility is adhered to while eliminating undue burdens to the City, developers and wildlife advocates.
Since the ordinance was enacted, over 1,000 prairie dogs from 3 different colonies have been humanely relocated to new habitat.
