While large carnivores have declined throughout the world, they are making a recovery in many parts of North America but are going extinct throughout much of Africa. How can science help? Chris Wilmers will explore this question and others in the context of his research on mountain lions locally and on leopards and lions in Kenya.
Chris Wilmers is a professor of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation at UC Santa Cruz. His research explores the impacts of human development on large predators such as mountain lions, wolves, lions, bears and leopards.
