Coexisting with All Wildlife: Project Wildlife

Our speaker will be Andy Blue, Campus Director of Project Wildlife Ramona for the San Diego Humane Society. He will discuss coexisting with all wildlife and particularly coyotes. They are a valuable member of our ecosystem preying on gophers, ground squirrels, rats, etc. By following simple suggestions, we and our pets can coexist with coyotes as well as other animals we may encounter including raccoons and skunks.

Andy Blue worked for the San Diego Zoo for over 30 years and was based at the Safari Park. He has been an animal keeper, animal care manager, and retired an Associate Curator of Mammals. He was responsible for animal shipments, exhibit design, and animal welfare. His work took him all over the world including Africa, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, India, and South America. He was also a member of the opening team at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Florida. He says “I have always been interested in improving animal welfare and wildlife trafficking and am currently working on projects in Somalia, Iraq, and Lebanon.” He has been with the San Diego Humane Society for three years and is currently the Campus Director of Project Wildlife Ramona.
