The goal of this meeting will be to improve understanding of tools for increasing livestock safety and carnivore tolerance on California's central coast rangelands -- from the perspectives of ranchers, agencies, and other rangeland owners. We will explore how techniques are applied to prevent depredations as well as methods for increasing economic viability of ranching alongside carnivores, including agency policies for compensation. Meeting presenters and participants will discuss animal husbandry practices, as well as hear from practitioners involved with local wildlife compensation programs.
