Living with Lions Webinar Series 2023

Mountain lions play a critical role in maintaining a healthy natural ecosystem in every landscape they inhabit, but their continued presence in those landscapes is often tenuous.

Our Living with Lions webinar series highlights the challenges mountain lions face in existing in a human-dominated world, as well as the steps that we can take to preserve their presence here.

Interested in hearing the latest developments in mountain lion research? Want to be a more effective advocate for wildlife? These webinars are for you!

Registration is open now for these events:

June 21, 2023: Trail Cams for Conservation

Trail cameras can be a powerful tool for conservation as they give us the opportunity to peek into the otherwise secret lives of wildlife. Hear how lion advocate and photographer Denise Peterson, founder of Utah Mountain Lion Conservation, is using trail cams to improve social tolerance through education, community, collaboration, and research.

July 19, 2023: Coexisting on a California Homestead

Many people in the West are lucky to share space with mountain lions. Tune into this talk to learn how the Mountain Lion Foundation helps people who live in mountain lion habitat to prevent the depredation of their livestock, as we recount a real-life scenario from Beach Front Farms in California.

August 16, 2023: Hiking Through Lion Country

Triple Crown long-distance hiker Renee “She-ra” Patrick will tell stores from the Pacific Crest Trail, Continental Divide Trail and Appalachian Trail and share practical advice for how to coexist with wildlife while exploring backcountry hiking trails.

Stay tuned, as each month we will dive in deep with scientists, journalists, authors, policymakers and more. Unless otherwise noted, all talks will take place at noon Pacific time, via Zoom. Registration is free and required in order to receive the link.

All events are free to attend, with donations to support our efforts welcome. This community has contributed well over $10,000 toward mountain lion protection efforts through these webinars since their launch in 2021. It’s inspiring to see so many people not only making time in their lives for mountain lions, but also giving generously to support recovery and co-existence efforts.
