Last month the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission adopted new regulations on where wells can locate, which the conservation groups say will protect land and wildlife from drilling operations.

Thursday's discussion is put on by Rocky Mountain Wild, the Colorado Sierra Club, Audubon Rockies, Great Old Broads for Wilderness and the Audubon Colorado Council.

Colorado Loves Wildlife Week started Monday and ends Friday.
