Dr. Quinton Martins will talk about Audubon Canyon Ranch’s Mountain Lion Project and his work with other large carnivores around the world. The ACR Mountain Lion Project is a community-based research and education project in the Mayacamas Mountains of Sonoma and Napa Counties that aims to increase scientific and public understanding of mountain lions, identify priority habitat areas for conservation, and increase appreciation for these important top predators. Come and learn more about these majestic, yet elusive creatures living in our area. Dr. Martins will share some of the Project’s preliminary research findings, answer your questions, and address fears some of you may have about how we can co-exist with this ecologically significant species.
Dr. Quinton Martins is a Wildlife Ecologist with Audubon Canyon Ranch (ACR) at their Bouverie Preserve near Glen Ellen.

The founder and former CEO of the Cape Leopard Trust in South Africa, Dr. Martins has over 20 years of field experience in wilderness areas throughout much of Africa, Saudi Arabia and the USA. His work highlights the manner in which charismatic and iconic apex predators like leopards and mountain lions, act as umbrella species, and can lead to broad ecosystem conservation.
