'What Makes an Apex Predator?'


The next meeting of the Hill Country Chapter of the Texas Master Naturalists will take place at 7 pm, Monday, Jan. 28, in the lecture hall of the Upper Guadalupe River Authority building, 125 Lehman Drive, in Kerrville.
Dr. Michael Tewes, of the Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute, the leading wildlife research organization in Texas, will speak on "The Texas Mountain Lion - What Makes an Apex Predator." An expert on the wild cats of Texas, Tewes will share his findings based on his 30-year study of this seldom seen, large, stealthy predator that roams the predominately southwestern region of Texas.
Tewes holds the rank of regents professor and research scientist in the Department of Animal and Wildlife Sciences, Texas A&M University-Kingsville and Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute.
A native Texan, he earned his BS and MS degrees in Wildlife Science from Texas A&M and his PhD from the University of Idaho.
The meeting is free and the public is invited to attend.
