A Free Film Screening

Held at the Havre de Grace Maritime Museum
100 Lafayette Street, Havre de Grace, MD 21078
This Wednesday, come out to our free screening of Meet the Coywolf!

This PBS Nature special tells the extraordinary tale of how the "coywolf," a wolf/coyote hybrid, quickly adapted and evolved into a new predator, roaming the streets of cities such as Toronto and New York City.

THE COYWOLF'S ORIGINS
  • Before European settlement, North America was dominated by the eastern wolf.
  • Deforestation, hunting and poisoning decimated most eastern wolf populations.
  • Smaller coyotes from the American Southwest soon moved in, filling the void left by the eastern wolf.
  • The eastern wolf, depleted in numbers, saw the western coyote as a potential mate.
  • The first "coywolf," or eastern coyote as it's sometimes called, appeared around 1919 and was traced to Algonquin Park in Ontario.
  • Traces of the common dog can also be found in most wolves and coyotes.
  • While one of the least protected species, the coywolf is among the most thriving in North America.


Following the film, Jim Bennett of the Maryland Department of Natural Resources will discuss the status of coyotes in Maryland.

 


Presented as part of our monthly Environmental Film Series, through the ongoing partnership of the Havre de Grace Green Team and Havre de Grace Maritime Museum, and through the generosity of the Joseph Robert Foundation.

All film screenings are free to the public, and are held inside the Havre de Grace Maritime Museum’s main gallery. A discussion will follow the film.
