Colorado College 2020 Conservation in the West Poll

Colorado College released its 2020 Conservation in the West Poll on February 20.  Topic reports in this bi-partisan opinion poll are conservation, climate change, energy, national parks, public lands, water and wildlife.  The Poll was conducted in eight western states: Colorado, Arizona, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming. The Poll was conducted by New Bridge Strategy and Fairbanks, Maslin, Maullin, Metz & Associates.  Here is the link to the Colorado summary page. Note that “69% of Coloradans consider themselves a conservationist.”  76% of Colorado respondents “think that portions of existing public lands where wildlife migrate each year should NOT be open to oil and gas drilling.”  https://www.coloradocollege.edu/other/stateoftherockies/conservationinthewest/2020/2020-conservation-in-the-west-poll-data/2020_SotR_StateFactSheets_CO.pdf
