The Belfast Free Library will host a virtual presentation with wildlife biologist Geri Vistein titled, “Coyote Lives in a Democracy”, Tuesday October 6 at 6:30 p.m. To register for the zoom link, go to https://belfastlibrary.org/virtual-programs
The expression Keystone Carnivore is used to describe Coyotes in Maine, but its meaning often is not fully understood.
“In this virtual presentation coyote will be introduced in this context, and how their important role affects us and the landscape of Maine in vitally important ways,” according to a news release from the library. “We are all inextricably connected. But our Coyotes are being prevented from freely and effectively acting in their capacity as a Keystone. What is the cause of this? Please join this virtual presentation on zoom to find out.
“Geri Vistein is a Carnivore Biologist and the founder of Coyote Center for Carnivore Ecology and Coexistence in Maine. The focus of her work is sharing with our communities the knowledge we are coming to know about our recovering carnivores, as well as the skills needed for us to live well with them.
“We live in a democracy, as citizens of Maine you will learn what you can do to affect the freedom that coyotes need to fulfill their important role as the Keystone. Get ready to be enlightened and inspired!”
