Ever wonder what it would be like to come face to face with a mountain lion? FWP wildlife biologist Jay Kolbe has spent over a decade of his professional career investigating the secret lives of mountain lions. Recently, Jay compiled a new Mountain Lion Monitoring and Management Strategy. The strategy uses cutting-edge genetic and statistical methods that will, for the first time, allow biologists to develop accurate population estimates for mountain lions in Montana. Jay will describe these new tools and methods and how we will use them to improve mountain lion management.

Jay Kolbe has been a wildlife biologist in Montana for the last 25 years and is currently based in White Sulphur Springs.
