Digital media stories published elsewhere by Marci Krivonen:
- Natural Gas Drilling Threatens Rare Flower 
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service added the rare Parachute Penstemon to its Endangered Species List this year. The tiny flower only grows on about 90 acres atop a high plateau in Northwestern Colorado, close to the resort town of Aspen. Fish and Wildlife officials say natural gas drilling, or potential development, is the greatest threat to the flower. In some areas, drill rigs are just 400 meters from the flower. Oil and gas industry officials say that listing the flower adds unnecessary regulations to an already over-regulated industry.
- Wild Horse Roundup 
I visited a wild horse gather in Northwestern Colorado this year. The Bureau of Land Management is tasked with thinning herds in order to keep the horses healthy, and keep the land from being overgrazed. Animal welfare activists are against the roundups, saying they terrorize the animals and the horses often end up in holding pastures for the rest of their lives. This was the first story in a two-part series that aired in September of 2011.
