Cougars are now in closer, more constant contact with people than ever before, largely due to their ability to adapt to human-dominated landscapes. How can cougars and humans live side by side, and what management actions will best help us co-exist? Join Aliah Adams Knopff as she discusses the results of cougar research conducted in west-central Alberta and the implications of these results for managing cougar-human interactions. Topics will include cougar habitat selection and response to human-caused landscape change, human perceptions of cougars, predation patterns and risk to people and pets - important topics for Yukoners as cougars spread north.
