NOVEMBER 14TH: "EYE OF A LYNX"

Nate Berg and Jared Laufenberg of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service share stories and their study of radio collared lynx, which looked at how and where these wild cats travel to make a living in Alaska. Their goal is to better understand and impart what we need to know to ensure lynx populations remain healthy, abundant and interconnected across Alaska’s vast landscapes.
