JOLIET, Ill. — Chris Anchor, wildlife biologist for the Cook County Forest Preserve District, will present a program on “Predators of the Chicagoland Area,” at the May 12 meeting of the Will County Audubon Society. The meeting begins at 7:15 p.m. at the Pilcher Park Nature Center, 2501 Highland Park Drive in Joliet. All meetings of the WCAS are open to the public without charge. The WCAS is a chapter of the Illinois Audubon Society, more information available at Will County Audubon Society web site.

Anchor has participated in the “Chicagoland Coyote Research Project" for the past 11 years. This is the largest and longest study of coyote behavior in the United States. He uses telemetry and DNA sampling to track the coyotes and answer questions about their behavior. Questions such as, How far do they travel? How large are their packs? Can they survive an attack by a large dog? This elusive animal has found a comfortable home in the urban landscape and Chris will provide many interesting highlights discovered in this study. Additionally, the presentation will include an update on predators seldom seen in Illinois – mountain lions, black bear, and timber wolves.
