The Illinois Bobcat Foundation is dedicated to raising awareness, engaging research and education on bobcats in Illinois. We recently funded the purchase of additional radio collars for a population study that was initiated by Christopher N. Jacques, Ph.D., CWB ®, Assistant Professor, Western Illinois University, Department of Biological Sciences. Dr. Jacques and graduate student Tim Swearingen have been trying to determine the population density of bobcats in west-central Illinois. The study will help in being able to better judge this native cat's presence.
We are excited to welcome Dr. Jacques to speak about his research at the Wildlife Discovery Center in Lake Forest, Il on September 14, 2017 at 5:30pm. Early arrival (prior to 5:30pm) is encouraged so you have an opportunity to visit resident bobcat, Boris! And ask his keeper questions.
Due to limited seating, registration is required, but this is a FREE event. Register at: https://goo.gl/wSaEzf an Eventbrite registration.
