Living with Mountain Lions

Thursday, December 20, 2012, 6:00pm at Cornerstone in Sonoma, CA

Zara McDonald, Executive Director of Felidae Conservation Fund, gives an engaging and inspiring presentation about mountain lions and the work currently underway to study and protect them. Felidae Conservation Fund is a non-profit that aims to advance the conservation of wild cats and their habitats planetwide through a combination of groundbreaking research, compelling education and cutting-edge technology. Felidae’s local project is the Bay Area Puma Project - the first large scale research, education and conservation program for mountain lions in and around the San Francisco Bay Area. These keystone predators (also called pumas and cougars) play a critical role in maintaining the health and biodiversity of our ecosystems. However, expansion of human populations is causing increasing encounters and conflicts between humans and pumas, and growing tensions in our local communities. Zara discusses mountain lion ecology and history, the challenges of sharing the habitat with mountain lions, and offers essential tips for living and recreating without fear in puma habitat.

Wednesday, April 20, 2016, 6:30pm at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco, CA

Felidae is a community partner at this great event! This wildlife epic first roared onto the big screen 50 years ago as the first mainstream Hollywood film to spotlight a big conservation issue. Since then, the story of Elsa the Lioness has captured hearts around the globe, not least inspiring star Virginia McKenna’s Born Free Foundation, dedicated to protecting these majestic animals.

Set in Kenya, it follows the true story of George (Bill Travers) and Joy Adamson's (Virgina McKenna) fight to return Elsa, a lion cub, to the wild. With the re-classification of many wild lion populations as endangered in December 2015 and inclusion of lions on the schedules of the US Endangered Species Act, the film's heart-warming story is even more relevant today. A must for all cat lovers, big and small.

Presented in a stunning new 4k digital restoration, courtesy of Sony Pictures Enterainment.Cost: $50/person

Mountain Lion Awareness Community Meeting - Solano County

Thursday, April 28, 2016, 7:00pm at Green Valley Country Club, Mansion Ballroom, 35 Country Club Drive, Green Valley

Recent sightings of mountain lions in and around Green Valley have prompted GVLA to invite Zara McDonald, Executive Director of Felidae Conservation Fund, to present information about mountain lion (also called pumas) biology and ecology. Regional research currently underway will be discussed along with mountain lion presence and viability at urban wildland interfaces in the San Francisco Bay Area. The Bay Area Puma Project is a multi-faceted study launched to research mountain lions, educate the public, and recommend responsible development that considers local wildlife and their habitats.

Mountain lions play a critical role in maintaining the health and biodiversity of our ecosystems. However, expansion of human populations is causing increasing encounters and conflicts between humans and mountain lions, and growing tensions in our local communities. Felidae discusses mountain lion ecology and history, the challenges of sharing the habitat with mountain lions, and offers essential tips for living and recreating without fear in mountain lion country.
