Felidae Conservation Fund

July 20, 2012 by Bay Nature

Felidae's mission is to advance the conservation of wild cats and their habitats through a combination of pioneering research, compelling education and state-of-the-art technology. Our latest research effort is the Bay Area Puma Project, a comprehensive study of the puma populations in and around the SF Bay Area. To help foster improved co-existence between pumas and humans, we meet regularly with local communities and schools in the region and give informative and inspiring presentations about this mysterious and important keystone species.

Berkeley Puma Caught at the Intersection of Habitat and Humanity

September 12, 2010 by Dan Rademacher

When a mountain lion showed up at 3 a.m. on Shattuck Avenue in Berkeley, things weren't going to end well for that lion. Statewide, though, many times more lions die on the road or for killing domestic animals. On Wednesday, September 15, community members and puma researchers will get a chance to talk it all over in person.

Through the Eyes of the Lion

April 01, 2010 by Joan Hamilton

Odds are you'll never see a puma. But if you spend enough time outside in local open space, there's a good chance a puma will see you. We know surprisingly little about how these secretive top predators persist alongside millions of people in the Bay Area, but they're certainly here. And learning more will help us figure out how to better accommodate this icon of wildness in our midst.
