Have you seen carnivores in and around your neighborhood? Do you wonder how to successfully coexist with carnivores?
Join us at Salmon, Science & Suds at the Rogue Alehouse in Issaquah to hear Kodi Jo Jaspers, the Community Conservation Liaison from Woodland Park Zoo's Coexisting with Carnivores (CWC) project. Kodi will discuss urban carnivores (such as coyotes, bears and raccoons) and coexistence. The CWC project is working with volunteers throughout the Issaquah area to deploy remote cameras and develop active solutions for coexistence with carnivores. On September 18th come learn more about the project, carnivore ecology, safety tips and a new online tool created by the project, where you can upload your own carnivore observations.

Kodi Jo started with Woodland Park Zoo in May 2019. She has also worked as a wildlife biologist in Eastern Washington for almost 6 years. In her role as a biologist she directly supported projects with many different species such as golden eagles, bighorn sheep, gray wolves and pronghorn. In her new role at the zoo she is bringing together her hands-on experience with carnivores and her Master's degree work in conservation education to grow and support carnivore coexistence projects in the greater Seattle area.
