Conservation Speaker Series – Saving the Puma

This event has passed.

Mountain Lions are in crisis, facing increased conservation issues each year as humans encroach further into their habitat. Working with landowners and state agencies, Bay Area Puma Project scientists are using custom GPS-accelerometer collars to track and record pumas and their activities on a continual basis. This research will enable us to develop new conservation and land use strategies to minimize human-puma conflict, and foster a healthy co-existence between humans and pumas in the region. Learn about Oakland Zoo’s involvement with the Bay Area Puma Project.
