Colorado’s cougars, cryptic and rarely seen, contribute to
the richness and complexity of our State’s ecosystems. As humans increasingly
encroach on their habitat, they live well in our backyards as new, cutting-edge
research on the Front Range shows. While big native cats live well with us, can
we tolerate them?
Come learn more about Colorado’s largest wildcat and how
common sense precautions can eliminate potential negative encounters. Join
WildEarth Guardians, Sierra Club, Cougar Fund, and Colorado Mountain Club in July and August as we host four evenings of
presentations entitled: “Cougars of Colorado.”
I will discuss cougars’ natural history, ecology, conservation,
management, and tips for living and recreating in cougar country.
Lead by Mat Alldredge, PhD, Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW)
conducts research on human and cougar interactions. CPW biologists will present
results from their Front Range study. You will be surprised to learn how
proximate we live to cougars.
