Cougars, corridors, and conservation with Paul Beier April 20, 1pm Eastern Watch this session here https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85064514694 RSVP here https://www.eventbrite.com/e/cougars-corridors-and-conservation-with-paul-beier-tickets-148689880435 Paul Beier has 30 years of experience in science-based design of wildlife corridors and working to conserve them on the ground. His research documenting that dispersing cougars find and use remnant habitat corridors in urbanizing southern California helped catalyze interest in corridors. He co-wrote the first systematic reviews of corridor effectiveness, linkage design procedures, and factors influencing success of connectivity plans around the world. His PhD student Brad McRae invented circuit theory. Paul worked for state governments to produce the Arizona Wildlife Linkage Assessment (2006) & the California Essential Habitat Connectivity (2010). He has worked with local governments to design 60 detailed linkage plans in the U.S., all of which are being implemented, and advised governments of Spain, Bhutan, Israel, Ghana, and Taiwan on corridor planning.
