Wild Cat Conservation

Students and faculty in the School of Natural Resources and the Environment are doing exciting work in the field of conservation, especially related to wild cats. 

Examples of this research include the UA's Wild Cat Research and Conservation Center, which is coordinated by Lisa Haynes, a Research Technician with the School. A number of SNRE faculty and graduate students are also involved with the Wild Cat Center. Research and activities include assessing bobcat distribution in Tucson, genetic assessment of mountain lions in the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge, and collaborating with international groups to help save tigers in India, along with many other local and international projects.
