Explore how human presence impacts Mountain Lion behavior, movement, and survival. The Santa Cruz Puma Project has been studying Mountain Lions (or pumas) in the Santa Cruz Mountains for the last 12 years. Join UC Santa Cruz Prof. Chris Wilmers, Ph.D., as he presents some of the long-term findings of the project’s research. He’ll delve into some of the mysteries of Mountain Lion natural history, including how they communicate with each other, how they react to the human voice (see here for a sneak peek), and how they have responded to the Covid-19 pandemic.

This free talk is part of the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History’s Science Pub series. Join our fun and friendly conversation, and quench your thirst for knowledge about science and nature. Like our real-life venue Dargan’s, this Zoom webinar is free, but has limited capacity.
