“Coyote Ecology in the Northeast” will be presented at the Southern Adirondack Audubon Society’s public meeting on Wednesday, February 28, 2018 at 7:00 P.M at the Crandall Public Library in Glens Falls, NY.  In New York, coyotes have a statewide distribution, but research has demonstrated that their abundance varies considerably across the landscape.  Commonly believed to live only in the more rural or wild parts of New York, coyotes have readily adapted to living close to people and are increasingly observed in suburban and urban environments.  Please join us as Paul Jensen, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Region 5 Wildlife Manager, presents information on this fascinating carnivore – from the history of their expansion into the northeast in the 1930-1940’s to current research on suburban/urban coyote populations, population genetics, impacts on prey populations, and interactions with other carnivores.


As the Regional Wildlife Manager based out of the DEC Ray Brook office, Paul oversees and is responsible for implementing a diverse wildlife program involving research, surveys, management of public lands, and outreach in the Adirondack/Lake Champlain region.  Paul received his B.S. in Environmental and Forest Biology from SUNY College of Environmental Science & Forestry, M.S. in Wildlife Ecology from the University of New Hampshire, and Ph.D. in Wildlife Biology from McGill University.
