In this episode, I interview Dr. Laurel Serieys, the founder of The Urban Caracal Project, a unique study currently looking at the effects of urbanization on caracal populations in South Africa. We begin discussing Dr. Serieys work with bobcats and cougars in Los Angeles and how that led her to Africa.

We end the discussion on how people can learn to co-exist with caracals and other wildlife.
