Woodland Park Zoo is looking for
volunteers who are interested in being part of the Coexisting with Carnivores program. These volunteers will
form teams that will work to help their neighborhoods coexist more easily with
carnivores. Teams will decide what are the most important issues related to
carnivore conflict in their neighborhoods, and what they think are the most
effective solutions. Woodland Park Zoo and the City of Issaquah will
provide support and help for teams to learn about carnivore behavior,
brainstorm carnivore conflict prevention measures, and eventually enact
Each team can decide what
level of commitment they want to give, whether it is a short meeting every two
months, or a long one every other week. Teams can also be groups that already
exist and want to keep working together, so you can participate as a group of
friends or a club you’re already a part of.
If you are interested in being a
part of such a team, or simply learning more about the program, we hope you
will be able to make it to one of our first Coexisting with Carnivores team
meetings. We have planned three meetings in three different locations, with the
hope that everyone interested will be able to make it to one (note: please
only come to one of the meetings! They will all be roughly the same).
