Study of the Beetle Communities at Mountain Lion Kill Sites

BY JOSH BARRY
@ STATE OF JACKSON'S MOUNTAIN LIONS: A CELEBRATION OF BIG CATS IN OUR MIDST, POWERED BY PECHAKUCHA ON JUL 27, 2018

Josh Barry is a master's student with Panthera's Teton Cougar Project and under Dr. Melissa Grigione at Pace University. He hopes to graduate in December 2018 with a Master's in Environmental Science. Josh grew up in rural Pennsylvania and would frequently visit the Pittsburgh Zoo where he would watch the animals for hours -- Josh eventually interned for the Pittsburgh Zoo's prestigious big cat internship. Josh's thesis research focuses on the beetle species that benefit from pumas on the landscape, with hopes of offering a new perspective on the importance of wild felids. Josh was recognized for his work with the 2017 American Society of Mammalogist's Annie M. Alexander Award.

Home Range Selection for the Mountain Lions of Jackson Hole

BY DR. PATRICK LENDRUM
@ STATE OF JACKSON'S MOUNTAIN LIONS: A CELEBRATION OF BIG CATS IN OUR MIDST, POWERED BY PECHAKUCHA ON JUL 27, 2018

Dr. Patrick Lendrum has been working with wildlife, primarily mammals, in one capacity or another for over a decade. Patrick began his wildlife career as a seasonal technician trapping, tracking and following creatures great and small from marten and fisher to black and grizzly bears across the Western US. A seasonal job with Colorado Parks and Wildlife monitoring winter survival of mule deer led to the opportunity to obtain a Master’s Degree at Idaho State University where he examined the migration patterns of mule deer in response to energy development. After that, Patrick served as the Wildlife Biologist for Panthera’s Teton Cougar Project where he studied the effects of recolonizing wolves on multiple aspect of cougar ecology in the Southern Yellowstone Ecosystem. Patrick has since completed his PhD at Colorado State University where he studied the response of the carnivore community to energy development, and is now the Science Lead with the World Wildlife Fund based out of Bozeman Montana.

Patrick is presenting on home range selection for the mountain lions of Jackson Hole.
