Cougars, Conservation, and the Connection to Art

Through his art, Roger Tory Peterson helped people to see and care about birds, birding, and bird conservation. Likewise, Thomas D. Mangelsen, through his art, has helped people to see and care about wolves, grizzly bears, and mountain lions, to name a few organisms.

In 2001, Thomas D. Mangelsen (photographer) and Cara Blessley Lowe (writer) founded the Cougar Fund, whose mission is to “… protect the cougar – also known as a mountain lion, puma, and panther – and other carnivores throughout the Americas by educating children and adults on their value, and by monitoring state policies and advocating for management based on sound science, to assure a lasting place for these creatures.”

Join us (via Zoom) for a one-hour conversation with Cara Blessley Lowe, co-founder and board member, and Penny Maldonado, Executive Director of the Cougar Fund. Learn more about these magnificent animals, the conservation work being done and ongoing conservation challenges, and the connection between conservation and art.
