BOBCATS IN TUCSON
July 21, 6:30 PM
Do not miss this special engagement! Bobcats in Tucson: A Study of Bobcats Living Along the Wildlands/Urban Interface will cover a unique study happening right now in Tucson, AZ. Wildlife biologist Cheryl Mollohan and a team of retired AZ Game & Fish colleagues received a Heritage Grant to conduct a study on one of America's "forgotten" wildcats. To date, 40 urban bobcats have been captured, and 19 are currently wearing satellite radio collars. This program will overview the study and specifically focus on what researchers have learned to date from our radio collared urban bobcats.
