We cannot save what we do not understand. The Bay Area Puma Project is a large-scale study across diverse habitats. With the help of camera-traps, the study reveals trends in mountain lion abundance, movements,and interactions with other species. Join Zara McDonald, Bay Area Puma Project Founder, to learn how the Felidae Conservation Fund and Oakland Zoo are partnered with a goal of improving our knowledge, awareness, and coexistence with mountain lions through community cameras.

“The advancement of camera technology allows us to non-invasively study wildlife as never before, and these methods are reshaping how we collect data and conduct research, especially in sensitive habitats at the urban edge.” - Zara McDonald, Bay Area Puma Project Founder
