Mountain Lions are elusive animals, living among us like ghosts. There is common human anxiety and fear that exists with these beings because of the ways they are portrayed as ruthless killing machines, but there is a much more nuanced story. These beings are incredibly important and beneficial for our ecosystems, and, in turn, beneficial for us.

Join Ecologist, Tracker, and Author, Dr. Mark Elbroch as he explores the question - do mountain lions disproportionately contribute to their environment in positive ways? He will share stories, images, and videos of his leading-edge research on mountain lion predation and its resulting diverse effects on local communities.
