Conservation Talks: ACR Mountain Lion Project

Conservation Talks: ACR Mountain Lion Project

Jun 4 2016 - 11:00am to 12:30pm
Martin Griffin Preserve

Description 

Join Wildlife Ecologist Dr. Quinton Martins of Audubon Canyon Ranch (ACR) to learn about the role of mountain lions and other top predators in ecosystems. As the Founder and former CEO of the Cape Leopard Trust in South Africa, Dr. Martins will share his experiences of studying and conserving Cape mountain leopards in South Africa and working with big cats elsewhere in the world. His work highlights the manner in which charismatic and iconic apex predators like leopards and mountain lions, act as umbrella species, and can lead to broad ecosystem conservation. Details on the trials and tribulations experienced while studying some of the world’s most elusive animals will be shared, along with recounting the significant value in engaging with the public and landowners. Having a passion for conserving mountain cats and connecting people to nature, Martins, now based at ACR’s Bouverie Preserve in Glen Ellen, is heading up ACR’s new Mountain Lion Project, an effort to increase scientific and public understanding of these charismatic predators with whom we share our local habitat.

REGISTER FOR THIS EVENT

Speaker's Biography: Dr. Quinton Martins, Wildlife Ecologist, ACR

Dr. Quinton Martins is a Wildlife Ecologist with Audubon Canyon Ranch, based at the Bouverie Preserve in Glen Ellen, where he is heading up ACR’s Mountain Lion Project.  He is the founder and former CEO of the Cape Leopard Trust, a successful predator conservation NGO based in South Africa. Dr. Martins has over 20 years of field experience in wilderness areas throughout much of Africa, Saudi Arabia and the USA. Quinton turned to studying predators in 2003 and completed his PhD “The Ecology of leopards in the Cederberg Mountains, South Africa” and is considered the world’s leading expert on Cape mountain leopards and a skilled predator trapper. A few years ago, he began looking at large mountain cats on a global scale, and has worked with researchers on mountain lions in California and Nevada. Quinton is passionate about the environment and finding innovative ways to conserve it; also being somewhat of a conservation entrepreneur, generating funds for conservation in a sustainable manner. He has a particular interest in determining the role of predators in the ecosystem and their use as flagship species for broader environmental conservation – connecting people to the environment and finding ways to mitigate conflict between humans and predators. He has a deep reverence for wilderness, rugged mountains and the role nature can play in shaping our lives. Quinton is a research associate and fellow at Bristol and Stellenbosch Universities.

Conservation Talks: A Fifty-Year Flight of Raptor Conservation

Audubon Canyon Ranch Event Calendar


Conservation Talks: A Fifty-Year Flight of Raptor Conservation

Jun 11 2016 - 11:00am to 12:30pm
Martin Griffin Preserve

Description 

For ten thousand autumns southbound birds of prey have migrated down the spine of Marin County and bunched up at the Golden Gate. Here, some cross with ease while others gain altitude and reach a confident height, then continue south. Since 1983, the National Park Service and the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy have combined forces to sponsor the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory -- a team of 300 volunteers, biologists, birders, and naturalists who monitor and track this spectacular annual migration. Raptor migration study has a rich history that not only connects to the earliest days of raptor conservation, but which also helped to trigger the modern environmental movement. Come learn the story of the GGRO against the backdrop of immense environmental and political change, as well as the answers to these provocative questions: What raptor earned a $5 bounty from the state of Pennsylvania in the 1930’s? What Marin County lagoon did Rachel Carson visit on her only trip to California? What raptor has suffered the greatest declines at the GGRO since 1984? What Bay Area coffee company is owned by an investment firm that holds 10% claim to D-Con -- one of the greatest threats to raptors in the last 30 years?

REGISTER FOR THIS EVENT

Speaker's Biography: Allen Fish, Director, Golden Gate Raptor Observatory

Bay Area native Allen Fish has been director of the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory since its inception in the mid-1980s. Schooled at UC Davis, he fell sideways into raptor biology and has never looked back. He lives in Berkeley with his wife Allison, two teens, Jack and Margot, and a coonhound named Rainier.

Conservation Talks: Welcome Back, Otters!

Audubon Canyon Ranch Event Calendar


Conservation Talks: Welcome Back, Otters!

Jun 18 2016 - 11:00am to 12:30pm
Martin Griffin Preserve

Description 

River otters are charismatic carnivores, and make wonderful ambassadors for river and wetland restoration and conservation efforts. Yet, little is known about their population, range and seasonal eating habits in the Bay Area. The River Otter Ecology Project has taken on the challenge of discovering and documenting their ecological niche, with the goal of informing land use decisions and preserving habitat for these lively aquatic mammals.

Join us as we discuss what’s known, what needs to be discovered, and just how we manage to research elusive, secretive mammals who slide into the water and disappear when approached. We'll show slides and videos from our ottercams, and discuss the project and the role that citizen science plays in this otterly exciting work! 

REGISTER FOR THIS EVENT

Speaker's Biography: Megan Isadore, Director, River Otter Project

Megan is a naturalist, wildlife rehabilitator and writer. She graduated from the College of William & Mary with a degree in English, never suspecting she would spend her entire career in one kind of science or another. Megan began as a medical writer, then produced continuing medical education programs and publications in medical risk management.

In 1998, after moving to Marin she turned her attention to watershed ecology. As Lead Naturalist for SPAWN, she produced and presented training programs for new naturalists, worked on field research projects on endangered coho salmon recovery and community education efforts, acted as Team Leader for rescue and relocating thousands of stranded coho fry from drying streams and led spawning surveys on headwater tributaries.

Megan fell in love with the otters after seeing them hunting in Lagunitas Creek and Tomales Bay. It was a natural step to look into their under-the-radar recovery and ecological niche here in our Marin watersheds, as well as across the Bay Area.
