“Wildlife Tracking Is For Everyone”

The San Diego Tracking Team Invites You To A Special Program

At Mission Trails Regional Park Visitor & Interpretive Center

Monday evening, 6.30 pm, April 10, 2023

“Wildlife Tracking Is For Everyone”

Climate change, wildfire, drought and human development continue to alter and shrink California’s natural habitats. The diminished availability of suitable habitat has placed more than 300 California animal species at or near the brink of extinction.

The San Diego Tracking Team is dedicated to preserving wildlife habitat in San Diego through citizen-based wildlife monitoring by conducting wildlife surveys to evaluate the health of key species. A key component of accurate surveys uses the age-old art of animal track and sign identification.

Wildlife Tracking is an art and science that is as old as humans. At the heart of it, all humans are trackers, whether we know it or not. We are always taking in patterns, interpreting them, and making meaning out of them as we move through our life. In the end, tracking belongs to everybody. It's in our bones.

The San Diego Tracking Team has contracted with Tracking Certification North America to bring one of its senior tracking trainers, Marcus Reynerson, to San Diego to host a conversation around the ways that we are working to reduce barriers for groups who historically have not had access to wildlife spaces. In the end, ecosystems are only as healthy as their diversity, and as more people join us in practicing the art of tracking, the richer our community will become.

Join us Monday evening, April 10 at 6:30 p.m. at Mission Trails Visitor & Interpretive Center to learn more about becoming involved in San Diego wildlife tracking, wilderness conservation, and to hear more about the efforts of the San Diego Tracking Team to make the outdoors accessible for all, regardless of economic status, gender, race or beliefs.
