Living with Mountain Lions

Tuesday, March 13, 2018

Learn more about the pumas all around us, with a speaker from the Felidae Conservation Fund.

This is an informational lecture. No animals will be at the program.

 Mountain lions (aka pumas and cougars) are a keystone predator and play an important role in the health of our ecosystem. However, expansion of human populations has caused increased encounters and conflicts between humans and mountain lions, and tensions are growing in our local communities.

A Felidae Conservation Fund biologist gives an engaging and inspiring presentation about mountain lions and the work currently underway to study and protect them.

  • Mountain lion ecology and history
  • Challenges of sharing the habitat with mountain lions
  • Essential tips for living in puma habitat without fear
About the Felidae Conservation Fund

Felidae is a non-profit that works in both North and South America to advance the conservation of wild cats and their habitats through a combination of groundbreaking research, compelling education, and cutting-edge technology.

Felidae's Bay Area Puma Project is the first large-scale research, education, and conservation program for pumas in and around the San Francisco Bay Area. BAPP's primary goal is to increase knowledge, understanding and awareness about Bay Area puma populations, in order to promote better co-existence and less conflict between humans and pumas in the region, and ultimately to help foster a more harmonious relationship between humans and the natural world.

This program is made possible thanks to funding from the Menlo Park Friends of the Library.
