Bobcat sightings across Connecticut have increased over the last 20 years, being reported in all 169 towns. As the population appears to be growing, the DEEP is working to learn more about these usually secretive cats and how they are adapting to our changing landscape. This presentation will focus on the natural history of bobcats in the state, what research the DEEP is conducting on bobcats, what we are learning, and how the public can peacefully coexists with bobcats and other predators. The talk will be supplemented with videos and pictures from DEEP research.
