Volunteers and Citizen Scientists

We have an active group of dedicated volunteers, who are core members of the scientific, administrative, and outreach team for the UA Wild Cat Center. They are the primary field personnel checking trail cameras in the Tucson Mountains. They also store and analyze data, process genetic samples, participate in report writing and administration—plus a multitude of other tasks!

We are so grateful to:

Steve and Cynthia Prendergast, Bernice and Gene Isaacs, Richard Maxwell, Matt Colvin, Steve Bless, and Doug Seigel…  TEAM WILDCAT!


Are You a Backyard Bobcat Photographer?

To better understand bobcats living in the urban interface around Tucson, we are asking people to submit photographs of their “backyard” bobcats. We then map bobcat photo locations to identify bobcat distribution in the Tucson area. Except in very rare case of rabies, bobcats pose little concern for humans, and most people are enchanted by “Wilbur” or “Wilma” wildcat (bobcat) living close by.

This project was funded by the Arizona Game and Fish Department Heritage Fund (funds from the sale of lottery tickets—play the AZ lottery
