Myths surround the coyote and cloud our understanding of it. Learn the true story of the eastern coyote: how it arrived in New England, how it lives among us, and how it contributes to healthy forests and fields. Learn why the coyote is a creature of our own making – an animal different than the western coyote in genetics and behavior but with the same superior resilience and adaptability. Despite the ecological benefits the coyote brings, it is the most persecuted carnivore in North America. And despite human efforts to eradicate coyotes, they survive and thrive among us.
Chris Schadler, the NH and VT Representative for Project Coyote, will discuss coexistence strategies, whether you farm, hike or garden. With 30 years of experience researching wolves and coyotes, farming sheep, and teaching, Chris will demonstrate that “knowledge is power” when it comes to living with coyotes.
