Williams Lake Backlands Short-listed for Cougar Re-introduction Program

Williams Lake Backlands  Short-listed for Cougar Re-introduction Program

The Williams Lake Backlands may play a crucial role in an exciting wildlife program – the re-introduction of the eastern cougar to central Nova Scotia. Spearheaded by the Cougar Foundation, in consultation with the Maritime Wildlife Federation, the idea for the program came together quickly. Said Richard Painter of the Cougar Federation, “we were looking for suitable habitat, and the federation saw the need for a native predator in the environment”.
