The 2015 Latin American Wild Felid Research Grant

Through support from The Summerlee Foundation, the Wild Felid Research and Management Association was given the opportunity to award grants to well-deserving projects on wild felids in Latin American countries. 
Five recipients and their projects were selected for the 2015 grant and each was awarded $5,000. Information on their projects can be found in The Wild Felid Monitor, V9(I2) and V10(I1). We hope to offer the grant again in the future.

WFA conducted a survey at the 12th Mountain Lion Workshop. To see the survey questions go to: Survey

WFA solicited survey responses from professionals who are involved in mountain lion management and research activities. We hope to present results of this survey in a future issue of our biannual newsletter, Wild Felid Monitor. Part of WFA’s purpose is to be a conduit for information exchange and the professional growth of our membership.  WFA believes that the compiled thoughts and ideas of professionals directly involved with the management and conservation of the Western Hemisphere’s most widely distributed wild felid may help promote discussion, help professionals more clearly determine future directions, and be an assist to those just starting their careers.
