Join the Wolf Conservation Center (WCC) for a special program about our local cousin to the wolf – the Eastern Coyote. Coyotes are one of the most successful carnivores in North America because of their ability to cope, if not thrive, in the face of human-caused changes to the environment. In recent years, their numbers have grown so much that they now live close to people. Dan Bogan, Ph.D. will discuss his research into coyote behavior and ecology in suburban landscapes where people and coyotes coexist. Learn more about their biology and behavior and ways to reduce or prevent problems from occurring between people, pets, and coyotes. After the talk, guests will visit Ambassador wolves Atka, Alawa, Nikai, and Zephyr as well as the WCC’s critically endangered red wolves. Pre-registration is required.
