Join us in Estes Park, Colorado for the 12th Mountain Lion Workshop on May 15-18, 2017! This gathering of scientists, wildlife managers and other professionals from the U.S. and beyond is a synthesis of scientific research, current management practices and latest findings on lion ecology and lion-human interaction.
The Mountain Lion Foundation will be hosting an exhibit table, presenting a poster and participating in important discussions about the future of mountain lions! We are looking forward to a great exchange of information and plenty of vigorous discussions about mountain lion management and research findings: what's being tried, what's new, what has worked, what hasn't worked, what science has revealed, and where we should go from here.

Session 5: MOUNTAIN LION−HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS

Conserving Mountain Lions in Southern California: Addressing fragmentation, conflict, and excess human-related mortality in comprehensive and collaborative ways.

And the Mountain Lion Foundation will be presenting a poster featuring an ongoing project titled, "Bridging the Gap: Increasing access with a new online reference tool for Puma concolor in the U.S."
The poster highlights MLF's centralized online database, bibliography, and library of documents pertaining to mountain lions (Puma concolor) in each of the 15 states in which mountain lions can be found. Still in progress, the project has compiled more than 1,700 research papers, reports, news articles, legal documents, theses, and dissertations to date. Spanning an array of topics such as biology, behavior, habitat, connectivity, genetics, and research methods, this master database will house all of this information in one searchable location. Providing easy access to researchers, it will also enable people outside of academic institutions access to these critically important resources on mountain lions.
