February 20, 2012- Urban Mountain Lions!
Jeff Sikich (National Park Service Wildlife Biologist) will present what we're learning about our local mountain lions. Research is ongoing since 2002, and during this time, we have radiocollared 21 mountain lions in the Santa Monicas, Simi Valley, and Santa Susanas.
Jeff will discuss what we've learned about the movement patterns, home ranges, diet, reproduction, and the ability of these elusive large wild cats to adapt and persist in an increasingly urban landscape. If you are curious about these charasmatic wild cats, come to Jeff's talk. He's an excellent presenter and has been the principal biologist responsible for most of the work done on our local mountain lions.
