Wildlife Matters looks at the Pacific Fisher

Tune in on Thursday, November 27 at 5 p.m., PST on www.kmud.org for the next episode of Wildlife Matters.  In this episode we talk to Mourad Gabriel of the Integral Ecology Research Center about the Pacific Fisher, an elusive and imperiled forest carnivore.  These formidable predators weigh in at only four to six pounds on average, but have been known to take down lynx.  Yet here in California, bobcats are their primary predators.  Join us as we learn about Fishers, and take a look at habitat changes, and the emerging threat of rodenticides, to understand why Pacific Fishers have seen a disturbing increase in predation and mortality.  Wildlife Matters will be posted on this site, after airing on kmud.  I hope you will tune in.
