Mountain Lion Foundation Events and Webinars



Will Stolzenburg – Discussing Saving America’s Lion September 24, 2020 at 1:00 - 2:00 PM PT, 2:00 - 3:00 PM MT, 3:00 - 4:00 PM CT, 4:00 - 5:00 PM - ET with Q&A afterwards.

Author of Heart of a Lion, Rat Island, Where the Wild Things Were and most recently Towpath’s Tail - Stolzenburg tells us he writes about animals, for three reasons: “Because I find them wondrous, and good for the soul. Because it haunts me to know how badly we treat so many of them. And because they deserve every voice, every compassionate ally we can muster on their behalf.” Join us for this lively and informative discussion.

Mark Elbroch, PhD – The Cougar Conundrum - Sharing the World with a Successful Predator -

A Conversation about Cougars

Presented on August 6, 2020

Mountain lion biologist and expert Dr. Mark Elbroch, in his just released book: The Cougar Conundrum, delivers a resource for how humans and mountain lions can peacefully coexist in close proximity. Dr. Elbroch calls on readers to ignore uninformed hype and instead arm ourselves with knowledge and become active participants in the creation of cougar conservation management strategies.



Colby Anton, PhD – The Yellowstone Cougar Project
Presented on August 20, 2020

Colby Anton is a native of the Bay Area of California and has been studying large carnivores for over a decade throughout the West. Since 2009, he has contributed to large predator research in Yellowstone National Park. For his dissertation research, he implemented a noninvasive genetic sampling project to estimate cougar populations in northern Yellowstone and deployed cutting edge tri-axial accelerometer collars to monitor cougar and gray wolf predatory behaviors. This collaborative research has contributed yet another piece to the growing knowledge base that surrounds the diverse Yellowstone ecological landscape.

Like most predators in western North America, cougars in the Yellowstone region suffered population declines following intensive eradication programs in the early 1900s. After a fifty-year absence, cougars re-emerged in Yellowstone National Park (YNP) in the 1980s. During this workshop, we will discuss key findings from nearly thirty years of cougar research that has shed light not only on their cryptic behavioral patterns and ecological relationships with other large mammals but also the cutting-edge technological advances employed to study large carnivores in the world’s first national park.



Rosemary Schiano – Living with Lions in the Wildland-Urban Interface
September 10, 2020
at 1:00 - 2:30 PM PT, 2:00 - 3:30 PM MT, 3:00 - 4:30 PM CT, 4:00 - 5:30 PM - ET with Q&A afterwards.

In this presentation Rosemary addresses both the need to protect lions and other predators and discusses practical non-lethal methods, devices, guardian animals and structures that homeowners, small farms, livestock farms and ranches can use and deploy to protect pets, farm animals and livestock from predation. Rosemary will include a focus on the natural history, ecology and behavior of mountain lions, and the challenges they face on the modern landscape.

Rosemary Schiano is an independent wildlife field biologist, tracker and educator. She served from 2011-2019 with the US Forest Service in the high Rockies of Colorado. Rosemary has over 40 years of experience in the field studying wildlife across North America with an emphasis on terrestrial and avian predators. She trains and certifies federal and state agency personnel, wildlife professionals and law enforcement officers in classes and workshops on living with predators, natural history and ecology of predator species, bear spray, aversion and hazing techniques, and how to apply them. She also gives public talks and classes about predators, non-lethal methods for protecting pets and livestock, aversion techniques and co-existence. Rosemary has tracked hundreds of mountain lions, bears, wolves and coyotes over the course of her career and regularly hazes predators upon request for homeowners and ranchers. She has managed ranches and never lost an animal to predation.
