FINDING COYOTE: A Lecture by Shelley Alexander

Finding Coyote: A Lecture by Shelley Alexander

Monday, 3 October 2016 | 7:30 PM - 9 PM

1111 Memorial Dr NW, Calgary, AB T2N 3E4, Canada

The urban coyote is one who lives in fragments of nature surrounded by city infrastructure. While natural on all accounts, by virtue of where we find it, the urban coyote likely has modified its behaviour to survive this impoverished ecosystem. Hear what U of C Department of Geography Professor Shelley Alexander’...s research has shown on how Calgary coyotes survive here and the nature of their conflict with pets and people across Canadian cities. Shelley will present recent findings from the Foothills Coyote Initiative, which examines prevailing attitudes, values and concepts of space and place and explores how we can engage art and community to renegotiate our relationships with coyote and together, flourish.
