Chapter Meeting

August 17, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us the 3rd Thursday of the month for our chapter meeting!

Presentation Title: Wild Texas Cats, Past and Present.

Presentation Summary: Texas has high wildlife diversity, second only to California, and our wild felines are no exception. Learn about our existing cats: mountain lions, bobcats, and ocelots; and find out about two extirpated species, the jaguar and jaguarundi.

Name of Speaker: Monica Morrison

Brief Bio: Monica Morrison got her start with wildlife more than 20 years ago at the Dallas Zoo as a volunteer and tiger docent. Since that time, she has volunteered in various capacities at two Dallas-area big cat rescue centers. She participated in an ocelot study in Mexico and another in Kenya on African lions. She has also worked with organizations in South America on jaguar and other big cat projects.

In 2017, she founded Texas Native Cats, a 501 (c)(3) that provides education, outreach, and advocacy for Texas’ five species of wild cats, past and present. Two years ago, she turned her attention to the Texas mountain lion and works with other like-minded individuals to advocate for a change in regulations for our apex predator.

Texas Native Cats’ overriding goal is to educate Texans about the diversity of our wild felines, the benefits they provide us, and the threats they endure.
