Presidio Dialogues


Wild Things

Co-existing with north america’s native carnivores

Thursday, February 4th @ 6:00 pm

Presidio Officers’ Club

50 Moraga Avenue



Wolves, bears, bobcats, and coyotes – oh my!

Project Coyote founder and executive director Camilla Fox talks about why native carnivores matter, how they bring balance to the landscape, and how they keep ecosystems resilient and

healthy. She discusses how America’s war against predators is costly, brutal, and often ineffective. Highlighting Project Coyote’s national programs aimed at stopping the mistreatment and mismanagement of America’s native

carnivores through education, science and advocacy, Fox shows that there are better ways to live with these animals and that educated co-existence is the way forward.


Project Coyote is a national non-profit organization based in Marin County that promotes co-existence between people and wildlife and compassionate conservation through education, science, and advocacy. Fox has 20 years of experience working on behalf of wildlife and wildlands and a Master’s degree in wildlife ecology, policy, and conservation. She has authored more than 70 publications and is co-author of Coyotes in Our Midst, co-editor and lead author of the book, Cull of the Wild and producer of the award-winning documentary Cull of the Wild: The Truth Behind Trapping. Fox has served as an appointed member on the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture’s National Wildlife Services Advisory Committee and currently serves on several national non-profit advisory boards. In 2006, she received the Humanitarian of the Year Award from the Marin Humane Society and the Christine Stevens Wildlife Award from the Animal Welfare Institute. She was named one of the 100 Guardian Angels of the Planet in 2013 and the 2014 Conservationist of the Year Award by the John Muir Association.

Coyote Hazing Field Training

SFDOG is helping promote a field training to learn when and how to haze a coyote, to keep them from habituating to people.
Coyote Hazing Field Training
Wed, October 7, 2015
5:30 pm to 6:30 pm
Pine Lake Dog Play Area (off-leash area next to Stern Grove)
Pergola (wooden structure in the off-leash area at the Vale Ave parking lot)
Presented by Gina Farr, National Coyote Educator, Project Coyote
Learn what to do if you see a coyote and when it is appropriate to haze one. Learn what hazing entails.
Learn how to keep everyone — people, dogs, coyotes — safe, and how we can all continue to enjoy this wonderful park.
Farr will illustrate proper hazing techniques and discuss when they should be used. Coyote Hazing Field Training will be held outside, by the pergola in the off-leash area at Pine Lake (immediately adjacent to Stern Grove; next to the parking lot on Vale)
Sponsored by: SF Rec and Park Dept, SF Animal Care and Control, Project Coyote, and SFDOG
NOTE: This is NOT the community meeting we’ve been pushing SF Rec and Park (RPD)  to have. RPD is finally organizing a community meeting for October 22, but I don’t have any other details yet. More info to follow when I get it from RPD.
