February 12 at 7 pm at the Huntingdon Veterans Community Hall in Ivanhoe
Tyler Wheeldon is a PhD candidate at Trent University. His presentation will summarize the preliminary findings from a three-year coyote study conducted in Prince Edward County. Coyotes in this area have been highly controversial, primarily due to concerns regarding predation on livestock. The presentation will attempt to address the issue of why coyote populations persist despite intensive harvest by humans.
Tyler will explain various aspects of coyote biology, including social organization, territory sizes, movements (includes animations), activity patterns, survival and reproduction. Coyote diet, genetics and morphology will also be discussed, adding to the understanding of this fascinating animal.
The Hastings Stewardship Council hosts this event. See the poster, below and attached, for more details.
