February 11th 2019:Cougar Rewilding with John Laundre

With returning guest cougar behaviorist and ecologist John Laundré, we examine how recolonization of cougars in the Eastern United States could happen and why reintroducing cougars would not only be a sound decision from a scientific and ecological perspective but would also have a positive effect on society by reducing the exploding deer and elk populations and the negative impacts that arise such as deer-car collisions and increased cases of Lyme disease. The science is clear that carnivores have stabilizing effects on ecosystems, but the social and political will is lacking as we have lived

John Laundré

Born and raised in the Midwest Professor John Laundré received bachelors and masters degrees, and PhD from Idaho State. He has worked for over 30 years in large mammal predator-prey ecology in the western U.S. and northern Mexico, with experience in the ecology of cougars, wolves, coyotes, bobcats, deer, elk, bison, and bighorn sheep. His 17yr study of cougar ecology and behavior is one of the longest running to-date. John is the originator of the critical concept of “the landscape of fear” of between predators and prey.

The science is clear that carnivores have stabilizing effects on ecosystems, but the social and political will is lacking as we have lived for so long without them. Sport and Hunter-led policies of management to increase game-species without apex predators, is nothing short of an ecological crime. Apex predators are essential to ecosystem health and sustainability of North America’s wildlife and habitats and without them we face unparalleled trophic cascades with severe consequences.
