Interview with Mt. Lion Foundation about his new book, “The Cougar Conundrum”. Scroll to ~ 2 min. in to get right to the interview.
Mark was going to write a book about cougar biology, but with all the recent cougar/human incidents, fear, tragedy, loss and hype about cougars and the human impacts on them, and the cougar impacts on humans, he decided to write a book to answer a lot of questions he receives as a cougar biologist, and lay out some of the realities of “life on the land” for cougars and people alike. With the hope of bringing some clear examples of how people and their animals have been able to live with cougars, I think Dr. Elbroch has provided some very contemporary starting points to understanding, living with, and even solving, the “cougar conundrum”.

The “arrogance of humanism” as David Ehrenfeld called it years ago, also “human exceptionalism,” has led to what Eileen Crist recently called the worldview of “human […]

SNOQUALMIE PASS, Wash. (AP) — Before descending the Cascade Mountains on its final stretch to Seattle, Interstate 90 cuts through a mountain pass of old growth forests and wetlands. For countless wildlife species, the busy highway is a border, constraining their movements and posing a fatal risk should they dare to cross it. “Everything from an elk down to a small salamander, they need to move to find food, to find mates, to find new places to live as their populations expand or just when conditions change, like a fire breaks out,” said Jen Watkins of Conservation Northwest.

Thank you for taking the time to volunteer for this Adventure Scientists Project. With these data, we hope to provide a safer environment for wildlife and drivers. Information about where wildlife-vehicle collisions occur, what animals are involved, and other data can help inform policy, management, and financial investment in reducing roadkill. We will present data back to collaborators in order to promote wildlife connectivity. You can learn about Adventure Scientists at http://www.adventurescientists.org
