Please join The Cougar Fund in welcoming mountain lion researcher and author Dr. John Laundré at the American Legion Hall in Jackson on January 10th. Doors will open at 5:30pm; enjoy a complimentary cup of chili before the 6:00pm presentation. Dr. Laundré will show many photos of the animals he worked with, discuss the ecological role of cougars as top predators, and read excerpts from his recently published book, “Phantoms of the Prairie.” A book signing will follow. For more information, please contact Lisa Rullman at The Cougar Fund, 733-0797 or lisa@cougarfund.org.

About John Laundré: Dr. Laundré has conducted one of the longest (17 years) studies of cougar ecology and behavior to date and has published numerous scientific articles. He is the originator of the concept of the landscape of fear, which proposed that fear of prey for their predators maintains the balance between prey species and their habitat. He is currently living in Upstate New York where he is a visiting faculty member at SUNY Oswego and is also active in issues concerning cougars in the Northeast. He is the vice-president of Cougar Rewilding Foundation.
