Zoom Program: Bobcat: Illinois' Native Cat

Tuesday, February 2, 2021
7 p.m.
Virtual via Zoom
Presenter: Jennifer Kuroda, Illinois Bobcat Foundation

In this talk, Jennifer Kuroda will cover every facet of the elusive cats, including history, biology, predator perception, management and information about the ongoing bobcat population studies in Illinois.

Bobcats, named for their short, bobbed tail, are about twice the size of a common house cat. They use their keen sight and hearing to hunt rabbits, squirrels, small rodents and some birds. They are mostly nocturnal, reclusive animals that prefer forested or wooded areas. Once hunted almost to extinction in the Midwest, bobcats have been making a comeback over the past 40 years.

Jennifer Kuroda is the founder of the Illinois Bobcat Foundation. She received her bachelor’s degree from Rockford University and is a lifelong Rockford resident. She serves as the board president of the Sinnissippi Audubon Society and Audubon Council of Illinois. She has been a nature lover since she was a young girl.

For all individuals who want to join the program, please email nwilaudubon@gmail.com to receive the link to join this Zoom program. This program will begin at 7:00 pm, first with any chapter announcements from the president and board members, followed by our presenter. There will be time for questions and discussions at the end. This program is open to the public!
