Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy Is Monitoring Foxes & Coyotes

wildlife tracking

As we look around our beautiful Palos Verdes Peninsula, we are being reminded that we are sharing our space with more and more wildlife.  Open areas are shrinking and wildlife here has started to move into our residential neighborhoods.  Recently, there have been several articles regarding the number of sightings and confrontations with wild foxes and coyotes on the Peninsula.  This is putting residents on notice that they need to be careful and protective of children and pets.

Palos Verdes homes owners now have the opportunity to keep an eye on these wandering animals.  The Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy now has a volunteer group to help monitor these animals in the Palos Verdes Nature Preserve.  The volunteers will conduct weekly surveys from November through March, and there are four Saturdays of training in October that are required.  Some tasks included in this monitoring will be to observe and submit your observations of scat and paw prints in your assigned trail section.
