At our AGM on Tuesday, February 28, 2023, Dr. Shelley Alexander, University of Calgary, will be giving a presentation on Living with Wildlife.
"Dr. Alexander is an international canid specialist and conducts field-based analysis of carnivore ecology, specializing in coyotes and wolves. She has studied human-wildlife relationships in the southern Alberta region since 1990. ... In 2005, she launched the Calgary Coyote Project, studying urban and rural coyote ecology and human-coyote conflicts across Canada. During that time she spearheaded Living With Coyotes, which was the first on-line educational and citizen-science monitoring tool developed for coyotes in Canada. In 2015, she founded the Foothills Coyote Initiative...which encompasses Calgary and the surrounding foothills parklands...." (University of Calgary website)
Given how often we encounter these four-legged neighbours in our community, this promises to be an informative talk. Welcome to Dr. Alexander!
