Richard Pickens and his colleague, Ian Hanley, are working with the Bay Area Puma Project, using GPS collars and cameras to track pumas’ movements near one of the largest metropolitan areas in the country. Scientists at the Bay Area Puma Project are hoping to learn everything they can about these cats: what they eat, when they mate, where they go-and how they die. These are the kinds of observations that can most effectively inform conservation efforts like setting aside useful tracts of land for wildlife.
