Event Details

Dr. Justin Dellinger, will present the next Sierra Science Lecture; Statewide research informs regional conservation priorities for mountain lions in California. In 2015, California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) began an effort to understand abundance, habitat use, genetics, and health of mountain lions across California. Though the effort is still well underway, great strides have already been made to increase understanding of multiple aspects of mountain lion ecology in California. This talk will detail the statewide efforts and findings to date as well as detail what is yet to come concerning’s CDFW’s efforts to conserve and manage mountain lions in California.
