For the past year filmmaker Jeff Hogan spent time in the field with the Teton Cougar Project to capture rare footage of these secretive animals. The resulting hour long film, American Cougar, will kick off Big Cat Week this Sunday on the Nat Geo Wild channel.
We invite you to join us at one of three special screenings of the film this Saturday and Sunday.
Saturday, Dec. 10th 4 pm there will be a special program for kids and families at the Craig Thomas Visitor Center in Moose. Come at 3 pm to meet the researchers and filmmakers. FREE
Sunday, Dec. 11th 5 pm and 7pm at the National Museum of Wildlife Art. Following each screening there will be a Q&A session with hands-on exhibits in the lobby beginning at 4:30 and 6:30. FREE
Thanks to our many supporters for making this film possible!
The Teton Cougar Project is an on-going research project that studies cougar ecology to improve management and conservation practices. Project partners Craighead Beringia South and Panthera track cougar movements for predation study, habitat use, home range analysis and population estimates.
