Conservation Lecture Series Presents: Statewide Research Informs Regional Conservation Priorities for Mountain Lions in California

Conservation Lecture Series Presents: Statewide Research Informs Regional Conservation Priorities for Mountain Lions in California

In 2015, CDFW began an effort to understand abundance, habitat use, genetics, and health of mountain lions across California. Though the effort is still well underway, great strides have already been made to increase understanding of multiple aspects of mountain lion ecology in California. This talk will detail the statewide efforts and findings to date as well as detail what is yet to come concerning CDFW’s role in conserving and managing mountain lions in California.

Date: Wednesday, April 24, 1-3 p.m.
Location: Resources Building auditorium, 1416 9th Street, Sacramento CA

International Bat Appreciation Day - April 17th

Happy April, all! This month brings a very special day, International Bat Appreciation Day! Spring has sprung and as hibernation comes to an end, bats can be seen feeding on insects returning to the state. This means April is an opportune time to observe them. Because their diet consists mainly of insects, bats are crucial to California’s fragile farming industry. The California Natural Diversity Database currently tracks 21 of the 25 bat species that inhabit California and holds over 2,800 mapped occurrences! With the spread of white-nose syndrome and recorded cases of the disease in Washington state, protecting California’s bat species is more important than ever. Want to contribute to the monitoring of these awesome critters? Have you seen some of these species in your area? If so, submit your observations through our Online Field Survey Form!
