Features and News

For ecologists, resilience is how a system responds to a major disturbance. What species traits give rise to a system that can recover from or resist a major perturbation? ACR’s ecologists and environmental educators work to hear the stories that nature tells and to share those stories.
This mama mountain lion and her three kittens were recorded in the Bennett Valley area about a week after fire swept the area. Dr. Quinton Martins shares his early impressions about how mountain lions might be moving through this fire landscape.
It’s been one year since ACR fitted our first Sonoma County mountain lion (P1) with a GPS collar. P1 has already provided us with reams of data as well as a window into the lives of these compelling cats. Late last month, we recaptured her to replace the collar's battery and check on her overall health.
