UNDERSTANDING BOBCATS IN THE GRANITE STATE: A cooperative project led by the University of New Hampshire and the New Hampshire Fish & Game Department



We created this web site to keep you posted on the details of our ongoing project. Based on the interest bobcats seem to generate, we thought that this would also be an opportunity to provide you with background information on one of New Hampshire’s most fascinating creatures. We encourage you to get involved – click on the "Report Your Observations" link in the left menu to send us information on any recent bobcat sighting and pictures you may have taken. With your permission, we will add your pictures to the Bobcat Photo Gallery. Check out the "Progress" tab to see what we have accomplished so far and our plans for future activities.

Volunteers needed to participate in a trail-camera count of bobcats in three regions of New Hampshire. Click here or on the red "Counting Bobcats" tab in the left menu for more information.

Those of you who do not own trail cameras may still assist our efforts by reporting incidental observations of bobcats that may occur (see Report Your Observations, left panel).
