Lecture: Gotham Coyote Project

Mianus River Gorge Director of Research and Land Management Chris Nagy, Ph.D., presents a free lecture on the “Gotham Coyote Project” Tuesday, April 5, from 6:30-8 p.m., at the Bruce Museum, 1 Museum Drive. The lecture is part of the Mianus River Gorge: Photographs by William Abranowicz exhibition at the Bruce Museum, which runs through June 5, 2016.

The Gotham Coyote Project is an ongoing research endeavor conducted by MRG staff, biologists from the American Museum of Natural History, and other partners to study the ecology of eastern coyotes in NYC and Long Island. Since 2010, the Gotham Coyote Project has observed the coyote expand its range, first in terms of simple presence and subsequently breeding range. This expansion brings new concerns, both real and perceived, as preventing human-coyote conflict becomes an increasingly important management concern especially in cities and suburbs where familiarity with coyotes is low and the potential for interaction high.
