Coexisting with Carnivores

Local communities engaging in carnivore research and peaceful coexistence



A warm welcome to our Coexisting with Carnivores teachers!

This page features the resources you will need for the Wild Wise: Coexisting with Carnivores (CWC) program. Be sure to bookmark this page! It is a private page exclusively for CWC teachers, and as such, has no links to it from the main Woodland Park Zoo website, nor can it be found by searching the zoo's website.

Also, since these resources were developed exclusively for the CWC program, we must ask that you do not share this link or any of the resources with anyone outside the program.

If you have any questions or problems, please contact Josiah Downey (
