PROJECT COYOTE is a national non-profit wildlife conservation organization working to promote coexistence between people and wildlife through education, science and advocacy. Founded in 2008 and headquartered in Northern California, Project Coyote aims to create a shift in attitudes toward coyotes, wolves and other native carnivores by replacing ignorance and fear with understanding and appreciation. Project Coyote accomplishes its mission by championing progressive management policies that reduce human-coyote conflict, by supporting innovative scientific research, and by fostering respect for and understanding of North America’s apex predators.
How we helped
"With Lush Charity Pot's support, Project Coyote is expanding our successful Coyote Friendly Communities (CFC) program, which assists communities in promoting coexistence with coyotes and other wildlife through public education and outreach, innovative prototyping, volunteer training and collaboration between agencies. Through this program, we empower communities and agencies to promote and implement coexistence strategies- instead of killing, replacing fear and ignorance with understanding and respect while fostering greater appreciation for native carnivores and the important role they play in maintaining species diversity and ecological integrity. Raising public awareness and providing easily accessible and science-based information is pivotal to achieving this goal. We're creating additional resources for targeted audiences including predator friendly ranchers, state wildlife agencies and municipal and county governments who seek tools and expertise regarding best practices for promoting peaceful coexistence. In addition, we aim to continue spreading our message of compassion, coexistence and appreciation for predators through our popular presentations, workshops and agency trainings.
We believe empowering communities and individuals is key to accomplishing our mission of peaceful coexistence between people and wildlife (with the coyote as our ambassador species); all elements of our Coexisting with Coyotes Program emanate from this premise. With your partnership we continue to reach more communities and target audiences with the tools and information they need to coexist with coyotes. "
