 “Hunting Behaviors of Cougars ” – Mark Elbroch, PhD, Director & Lead Scientist, Panthera’s Puma Program

When: July 16, 2019 at 7 p.m.

Where: Dungeness River Audubon Center (outdoor amphitheater in Railroad Bridge Park)

Cost: Free

Perhaps no other behavior so defines cougars, as their ability to subdue and kill prey many times their size. And its no doubt that their unique weapons and hunting strategies make them scary. Join Mark Elbroch of Panthera for a visual and anecdotal presentation on the Peninsula’s largest carnivore, the cougar. Through research and visual imagery, Mark will discuss how cougars hunt, which prey they prefer, and how often they feed. He’ll also discuss how cougar hunting behaviors fit into our larger ecosystems. Appropriate for all ages.

The Dungeness River Audubon Center is bringing back the, “Learn by the Light of the Moon” speaker series this spring with a whole new line-up. These talks will happen once a month, as the full moon dictates. The series provides opportunity for our community to hear from local naturalists and scientists, working to better understand the world around us. Please join us under the light of the full moon in our beautiful outdoor amphitheater for an evening of discovery and wonder.

There is seating in the amphitheater but feel free to bring lawn chairs and blankets!

Talks will happen rain or shine (if raining, will move into building.)
