WORKSHOP ON JAN. 22: LIVING WITH COYOTES
RSVP to confirm a seat
Berkeley, California (Wednesday, January 11, 2017) - Come learn about coyotes, a remarkably adaptable and resilient predator that poses both challenges and benefits to urban and rural communities.
Revered by many Native American tribes as tricksters and creators for their cunning adaptable ways, coyotes have expanded their range across North America. They are increasingly common in residential areas, and their presence can cause alarm and fear, especially regarding pets.
Berkeley Animal Care Services - the City shelter -- in conjunction with the nonprofit Project Coyote is presenting an educational workshop on January 22nd titled Living with Coyotes. Topics covered in the workshop will include:
- Common causes of negative encounters with coyotes
- Strategies for reducing negative encounters
- Keeping pets safe
- Approaches to successfully living with coyotes and other wildlife
Coyotes- known as North America's native Song Dog and as God's Dog by the Navajo- are the most common and persecuted native carnivore in North America. Come learn from Keli Hendricks, Project Coyote's Ranching with Wildlife Coordinator, about the fascinating and complex world of Canis latrans - their keen intelligence, amazing resourcefulness, and importance as keystone carnivores in many ecosystems.
