Wildlife and Habitat Connectivity - Environmental Forum of Marin

Wednesday, April 12, 2017, 7pm-9pm at the First Presbyterian Church, San Rafael

Explore the concepts of habitat connectivity and wildlife corridors. Our open space districts, park lands and water districts provide us with drinking water, space to recreate and scenic vistas. If these lands are contiguous they provide the terrestrial and riparian habitat connectivity needed by many wildlife species. Learn how gaps in connectivity created by roads, cities and farms form barriers to wildlife. Yet river otters have returned to Marin and mountain lions thrive in the Bay Area, living with 7 million people. Biologists will share stories about the lives of our local river otters and pumas, and teach us how to be better neighbors to wildlife.

Living with Mountain Lions - WILD Napa

Wednesday, June 21, 2017, 6:30pm at the American Canyon Library

San Francisco-based and globally-working wild cat conservation organization, Felidae Conservation Fund, gives an engaging and inspiring presentation about mountain lions and the work currently underway to study and protect them. Felidae Conservation Fund is a non-profit that aims to advance the conservation of wild cats and their habitats planetwide through a combination of groundbreaking research, compelling education and cutting-edge technology. 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. Felidae discusses mountain lion ecology and history, the challenges of sharing the habitat with mountain lions, and offers essential tips for living and recreating without fear in puma habitat.
