Chris Papouchis, conservation biologist with the Mountain Lion Foundation, will explore the natural history, biology, and behavior of Mountain Lions, and discuss the ecological importance of conserving lion populations. He’ll also address how conflicts between Mountain Lions and humans can be avoided, and offer insight into the complex sociopolitical issues that affect the relationship between humans and Mountain Lions in the American West.
A trained wildlife biologist, Chris Papouchis has worked for several federal and state agencies researching a variety of wildlife species throughout the West. He works with Mountain Lion researchers, wildlife managers, and communities to promote scientifically based and socially acceptable conservation and management strategies for Mountain Lions in the western states. Chris holds an MS in environmental studies from Antioch University, where he is completing a PhD focused on Mountain Lion conservation.
