Science Sunday Conservation Lecture

23-Oct-2016

Sunday, October 23, 2016 from 1:00-2:30 pm

Osher Great Hall of the Lurie Education Center

Please join us for Science Sunday, part of the Wild Places, Wild Things! Conservation Lecture Series. Felidae Conservation Fund presents Living with Mountain Lions, a discussion about protecting mountain lions in the Bay Area. 

Mountain lions (also called pumas and cougars) are keystone predators that 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. San Francisco-based and globally-working wild cat conservation organization, Felidae Conservation Fund, will discuss work currently underway to study and protect mountain lions through its flagship project, Bay Area Puma Project. Join us to learn about mountain ecology and history, the challenges of sharing the habitat with mountain lions, and essential tips for living and recreating without fear in puma habitat. 

The public is welcome to attend the lecture at no charge. Content is recommended for ages 12 and older.

Call 415-753-7073 with questions.
