Online Merryspring webinar with Geri Vistein, ‘Coyotes: America’s Song Dog’

Event has passed

Conservation biologist Geri Vistein will lead a presentation on “Coyotes: America’s Song Dog” in an online webinar hosted by Merryspring Nature Center on Tuesday, April 13, at 12 p.m.

In this program, Vistein will guide the audience to discover coyotes (Canis latrans) in a way the audience has never heard this important and resilient carnivore before. This presentation is not only about coyotes, but humankind as well, since the coyote shares the landscape and their lives with humans. This presentation will also reflect on how life on earth is deeply interrelated and complex, with thoughts on human belief systems, European worldviews, wildlife science and ecology, animal husbandry, and more.

Vistein is a conservation biologist whose focus is carnivores and their vital role in maintaining the biodiversity of the planet. Her work centers on educating the Maine community about carnivores, their ecology, their complex cultures and history, and how people can coexist with them. She is the founder of Coyote Center for Carnivore Ecology and Coexistence, whose mission is to share with community members the science known of the returning carnivores and the skills to live well with them.
