Nature Speaks: Felidae comes to Lindsay!
Come learn of the plight of the wild cats around the world when The Felidae Conservation Fund comes during our Sunday speaker series Nature Speaks 2 p.m. April 30. Felidae works to improve the state of global wild cat ecosystems through a sequence of research, education and online technologies to benefit humanity and drive meaningful change in the natural world.
Courtney Coon, the organization’s lead field biologist will be at Lindsay to discuss the work currently underway to study and protect mountain lions. Learn about mountain lion ecology and history, the challenges of sharing habitat with mountain lions, and learn essential tips for living and recreating without fear in puma habitat.
Felidae works in both North and South America on different mountain lion research and conservation projects. The flagship project is the Bay Area Puma Project – www.bapp.org. These keystone predators (also called pumas and cougars) play a critical role in maintaining the health and biodiversity of our ecosystems. However, expansion of human populations is causing increasing encounters and conflicts between humans and pumas, and growing tensions in our local communities.
No registration required. Free to members included with price of admission for general public.
