Join Guy Galante in exploring how environmental and human factors have resulted in more coyote sightings in our regions urban and suburban neighborhoods. This has created both fear and excitement among residents. One of the biggest consequences of this is the loss of neighborhood pets, particularly outdoor cats. Roots of Connection has assumed a voluntary role with Project Coyote to provide educational materials and trainings to help residents humanely coexist with urban wildlife. The project is designed to ensure human and pet safety, minimize conflicts, and promote coexistence through mutual respect, fairness, and empathy. We provide basic ecological and biological coyote information, discussion on why coyotes are around you, simplified explanations of local and state regulations, pet and child safety tips, methods for deterring coyotes, appropriate responses when encountering coyotes, and proper hazing techniques. Print materials and links to additional resources help provide consistent messaging and a shared language to similarly address coyote issues in our communities.
