Field Research

Fragmentation of habitat is a major threat to wildlife populations throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. With this project we will learn more about species movement in several locations in the Santa Cruz and Diablo Mountain ranges. This will enable us to make informed recommendations to land managers and roadway engineers concerning location of wildlife corridors to help protect local ecosystems.

The Bay Area Puma Project (BAPP) is the first large scale research, education and conservation program for pumas in and around the San Francisco Bay Area. BAPP's primary goal is to increase knowledge, understanding and awareness about Bay Area puma populations, in order to help foster a more harmonious relationship between humans and the natural world.
