Why are coyotes so polarizing?

First things first: Coyote. When you read the word, how many syllables do you hear? Your answer, according to Dan Flores, author of Coyote America, may be “immediately diagnostic of a whole range of belief systems and values.” The ki-YOH-tee versus ki-yote divide is one of the best indicators of a person’s coyote politics, a nearly hard-and-fast way that we subconsciously identify ourselves: as defenders of the species, in the case of the former, or as a manager, shooter and/or trapper, in the latter.

WHO WE ARE

Project Coyote, a national non-profit organization based in Northern California, is a North American coalition of scientists, educators, ranchers and citizen leaders promoting compassionate conservation and coexistence between people and wildlife through education, science and advocacy. We work to change laws and policies to protect native carnivores from abuse and mismanagement, advocating coexistence instead of killing.

WHAT WE DO

All of our work — through education, science, and advocacy — strives to create fundamental and systemic changes in the ways wild carnivores are viewed and treated in North America. Project Coyote seeks to stop the wanton and cruel killing of native carnivores, to reform predator management, to create successful models of coexistence, and to inspire the next generation to care for Wild Nature.

WHY CARNIVORES

Since European colonists stepped foot on the North American continent, native carnivores have been viewed as a threat to livestock and to species humans hunt for food. Like Native Americans, carnivores have been brutally killed and bountied in an effort to eradicate their populations. As the most persecuted and maligned native predator, the coyote represents all misunderstood and exploited predators.
