Coyote Management – Data From Three Year Study @ Virtual Meeting

At the request of the City of Culver City, Loyola Marymount – Los Angeles (LMU-LA) Center for Urban Resilience, scientists, collaborators, and students conducted a three-year management study to assist the City of Culver City and its residents in managing the dynamic challenge of coexisting with resident and transient coyotes.

On Thursday, June 22nd, from 6 PM to 8 PM, the LMU-LA CURes senior scientific staff will report the findings and discuss next steps in Coyote management efforts.

Despite the considerable social and logistical upheaval caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, CURes staff and collaborators collected and analyzed data continuously through the various phases of the pandemic.

The CURes team worked to:

Gather appropriate ecological, technical and human social data with regard to coyote ecology and human-wildlife conflict;
Analyze these findings in comparison with other studies conducted across North America; and
Develop durable management interventions linked with formal and informal education to reduce the negative impacts of the expanding coyote population in Culver City and beyond.
