Peninsula Open Space Trust
The Peninsula Open Space Trust protects and cares for open space, farms and parkland in and around Silicon Valley. The trust is shaping a vibrant ecosystem for Silicon Valley – a network of protected lands that provide scenic beauty, clean air and water, locally grown food and a place for people and wildlife to thrive. With foundation support, POST conducted a research project to increase knowledge about carnivore movement within Coyote Valley and the Santa Cruz Mountains by monitoring and evaluating individual animal habitat selection and movement patterns. A recent result of that research yielded a video of a coyote and a badger using a freeway underpass to hunt in the area.
