CARBONDALE — A coalition has formed to promote education about gray wolves in hopes of winning support for their reintroduction in Colorado — an idea that continues to meet strong resistance from the state's ranching community.

The Rocky Mountain Wolf Project was created with the goal of using education to advance restoration in the state, said Mike Phillips, a biologist who was involved in multiple wolf reintroduction projects and is part of a science advisory team, during a presentation in Carbondale Wednesday.
