Secrets of the Spotted Cats: Jaguars and Ocelots in the Southwest

May 2 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm MST

$10 – $15

Thursday | May 2nd | 1pm – 2:30 pm | Education Center – Classroom 1

Deep in the shadows of the night, “el Tigre”, the jaguar, slips silently through the rugged terrain. They are almost never seen, but both jaguars and ocelots are captured on remote cameras that document their presence. Their mystery, beauty and power evoke a sense of awe in us, even if we only see them in a photograph. Although we readily recognize their images, these charismatic cats are so secretive and elusive that we know very little about their lifestyles and habits. What are they doing out there in the wild? How (and what) do they hunt? Where do they sleep? What sounds do they make? Are there still any spotted cats in Arizona? (Yes!!)

Join Pinau Merlin, previously the Outreach Coordinator for the USFWS/University of Arizona Jaguar Project, for an exciting look into the natural history, ecology and conservation issues of jaguars and ocelots in Arizona and Sonora.

$10 for members and $15 for the general public
