The Wetland Stewards learning telemetry

We have had a great time over the last two weeks speaking with the future scientists and conservationists of Santa Cruz County. About one hundred students from the Young Scientists Club at Westlake Elementary joined us to chat about puma biology and how to live with pumas. Nine inspiring students from the Wetland Stewards group in Watsonville came out to learn animal tracking techniques and discuss conservation goals and challenges for wide-ranging carnivores. Thanks to both groups for inviting us to share a bit about Santa Cruz pumas with you – we look forward to keeping up on all the great work you are doing!
