ANZA — Area residents are being invited to join the Mountain Lion Foundation’s Conservation Specialist Korinna Domingo later this month to learn more about issues related to living in close proximity with mountain lions.

The free community meeting is scheduled to be held Jan. 18, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., at Anza Community Hall, located at 56630 SR-371, in Anza.

In her presentation, Korinna told RCNS she will clear up common misconceptions about these amazing wild cats, while sharing interesting information about their biology and behavior, and answering any questions residents might have about living alongside them.

As the Mountain Lion Foundation’s Conservation Specialist, Korinna spearheads the Foundation’s conservation programs which aim to end trophy hunting across the West and reduce the number of mountain lions killed as a result of depredation, poisons, traffic, poaching, and habitat loss.

Korinna is a passionate science communicator and frequent speaker at community events and professional conferences. She is dedicated to working collaboratively with communities to implement solutions that protect people, pets, livestock, and livelihoods.

“This event is free, so bring a friend,” Korinna told RCNS as the date for the event was approaching.
