Free Coyote Coexistence Programs Encourage Appreciation for Local Wildlife
Coyotes have a remarkable ability to adapt to any surrounding. With indefatigable survival instincts, coyotes have expanded across much of the continent and live in all of the U.S. save Hawaii, despite the untiring efforts by humans to kill them.
A close cousin to the wolves we are dedicated to protecting, coyotes play an equally vital role in our local ecosystem as an apex predator. Coyotes are explorers, opportunists, and one of the most successful carnivores in North America because of their ability to survive after centuries of persecution at the hands of ranchers, landowners, farmers, and government agents. Learning more about the natural history of coyotes can help people understand their ecological role and how to successfully coexist with them.
In an effort to increase our local impact, the WCC is committed to educating the local community on the wildlife with whom we share our landscape. This initiative includes providing off-site programs for schools, nature centers, libraries, and more to discuss the importance of our native flora and fauna.
