Coyotes are one of the most successful carnivores in North America because of their ability to cope, if not thrive, in the face of human-caused changes to the environment. In recent years, their numbers have grown so much that they now live close to people. Dan Bogan, Ph.D. will discuss his research into coyote behavior and ecology in suburban landscapes where people and coyotes coexist. Learn more about their biology and behavior and ways to reduce or prevent problems from occurring between people, pets and coyotes. Dan Bogan is an Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies and Sciences at Siena College. His research investigates behavioral ecology of wildlife and interactions with humans, carnivore ecology and conservation, and urban wildlife ecology and management. Dan holds a PhD from Cornell University, a MS from SUNY University at Albany and a BS from SUNY Environmental Science and Forestry. Sponsored by the Friends of Peebles Island State Park, Audubon Society of the Capital Region, and Siena College Department of Environmental Studies and Sciences.
