Project Coyote, in Larkspur, CA, is a very interesting and important nonprofit organization. My friend Camilla Fox is the founder and executive director and the mission of her organization is “to promote educated coexistence between people and coyotes and to advocate of behalf of America’s native Song Dog.” I’m definitely for that! It’s time we humans stopped persecuting these beautiful animals.

The latest issue of project Coyote’s “Coyote News” is now available. Check it out. It’s a pretty good read: http://www.projectcoyote.org/ProjectCoyote_FactSheet_CoyoteNews.pdf

You can learn more about Project Coyote at http://www.projectcoyote.org. They need your support. Thanks for caring. /Gary

See video trailer of new film, “American Coyote — Still Wild at Heart”

Project Coyote — in partnership with Still Wild at Heart — is launching a new documentary, “American Coyote — Still Wild at Heart.”

Documentary preview

While the film unfolds with the return of coyotes to the San Francisco Bay area, it pursues the coyote’s story across the North American landscape — from Northern California to New York City’s Central Park to Chicago, and points in between.
