WORKSHOP ON FEB. 4: LIVING WITH COYOTES
RSVP to confirm a seat

Berkeley, California (Friday, January 19, 2018) - Come take advantage of a unique opportunity to learn about coyotes, remarkably adaptable and resilient predators that pose both challenges and benefits to urban and rural communities.

The coyote, known as the Song Dog has existed in North America since the Pleistocene and is the most persecuted native carnivore in North America. Coyotes have expanded their range across North America and are increasingly common in residential areas where their presence can cause alarm and fear, especially regarding pets.Coyote pic

The City shelter, which is formally known as Berkeley Animal Care Services, in conjunction with the nonprofit Project Coyote is presenting an educational workshop on February 4th 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

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.
