Our program focuses on conservation issues that impact San Mateo County and the native California animals that reside at CuriOdyssey. We accomplish this through participating in and supporting a variety of projects, including habitat restoration, sustainable practices, research, citizen science projects, and captive breeding.
Some highlights from our 2017 conservation and research report include:
- Bay Area Bobcat Study – Felidae reporting 4 new interns, a completed research paper out for publication, more trail cameras in various locations, and strong volunteer monitoring.
- Bay Area Frog Watch reporting 11 new certified volunteers in 2017, with a total of 36 local observations between Feb ’17 and Aug ’17 (one observation even included visual of California’s threatened frog species the California red-legged frog).
Invasive plant removal:
- Coyote Point Marsh Restoration Project reporting over 900 gallons of invasive plant LIRA removed in 2017 by volunteers.
Native bee habitat establishment:
- Urban Bee Lab reporting on both their development of new sites for native bee habitats as well as their progress with training farmers on bee maintenance.
