The film that captures the essence and spirit of Colorado wolf recovery efforts.

Welcome Home celebrates the incredible story of wolf reintroduction to Colorado. When the people of Colorado voted to return wolves to the state, they set in motion a unique conservation success story. Welcome Home shows the value of returning this iconic and beloved carnivore to Colorado and how the state is recovering wolves in a thoughtful way that cares for wildlife and people.

Meet the Director

Welcome Home is Directed by Alan Lacy, Founder & Chief Filmmaker of Reel Earth Films

About Alan:

Welcome Home is directed by Alan Lacy, founder of Reel Earth Films. Alan’s first film, “Gray Area: Wolves of the Southwest” is an award-winning documentary that has screened internationally. Alan’s work has aired on National Geographic, Disney+, and PBS Nature, with more upcoming work soon to air on the BBC.

Growing up, Alan’s family gave him the nickname, “Nature Boy”.  At age 10, Alan’s endless curiosity for the wild turned into his lifelong purpose, when he locked eyes with a coyote and felt like he was connecting with the soul of a wolf and with the heart of Mother Nature. Twenty years later, this encounter led him to blaze a trail in wildlife filmmaking.
