Chris Nagy, PhD, an urban wildlife expert and director of research and education at Mianus River Gorge, Bedford, NY, will present a talk entitled “New York’s Newest Immigrant: Coyotes in the City” on Thursday, January 17 at 7:00 p.m. in Grupp Fireside Lounge.
Nagy, a biologist and ecologist with a focus in wildlife management conservation, specializes in areas including geographic information systems (GIS), population biology, species distribution modeling, and raptor and coyote ecology. He has worked on a number of projects, including one on Eastern screech owl ecology along an urban/suburban gradient and another on coyote colonization of New York City and Long Island. A majority of his work involves determining how animals utilize urban landscapes and what can be done to amplify wildlife diversification in these areas.
