Yellowstone In-Depth: Cougars
Cultural History, Natural History, Wildlife
Cougars, along with wolves, were killed throughout the U.S. as part of predator removal campaigns in the early 1900s. Cougars were eliminated from the park around the same time wolves were in the 1930s, but the species overall survived in the West. Working in their favor were the large cat’s secretive nature and preference for rugged terrain where they are difficult to detect. This two-day program will provide participants the opportunity to learn more about this elusive species, in addition to engaging with stakeholders involved with the management and science, in and around Yellowstone National Park.
A portion of the proceeds from this class will go towards supporting the Yellowstone Cougar Project.
