Tyler Christensen: Photographing New Jersey’s Bobcats
Monday, March 18, 2019, at 8:00 pm
Bobcats are the only naturally-occurring wild feline in New Jersey and are endangered in the state. Rare, intelligent, and highly elusive, bobcats are notoriously difficult to photograph in the wild. In order to capture up-close images these charismatic cats, Tyler has turned studio-quality camera equipment into motion-activated “camera traps.” The resulting images are used to tell stories of tracking, natural history, and conservation of NJ’s endangered wild cats.
Tyler is a wildlife biologist and photographer from NJ. He has photographed the state’s bobcats and conducted surveys of rare wildlife through his company, Piedmont Ecological Services. He is a founding member and director of the nonprofit Wild Bird Research Group, coordinating ornithological research projects in New Jersey and Costa Rica; a land steward for Friends of Hopewell Valley Open Space; and a WCAS board member.
Refreshments served at 7:30 pm; program begins at 8:00 pm.
