Radio-collaring bobcats for mortality studies

May 17  |  7 p.m.  |  Nature Lab & Zoom

In January 2022 and 2023, Sarah Williams traveled to Phoenix, Arizona, to assist a large carnivore biologist in trapping and radio-collaring bobcats for mortality studies conducted by the Arizona Game & Fish Department.

In this presentation, Sarah (M.S. in biology, 2007, Ball State) will discuss how bobcats were humanely trapped and collared, and the implications of the study. The presentation will include video and photographs, as well as bobcat study skins and skulls for attendees to view and handle.

The meeting will start at 7 p.m. and will be offered both via Zoom (register below) and in-person, at Ball State’s Nature Lab, located at 2500 W. University Ave. in Muncie. Parking is available on the south side of the building and is free after 5 p.m. The building is wheelchair-accessible.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
