Within each territory on the Visualization Tool, what areas might you suspect would have a higher risk for conflict between coyotes and humans? How can conflict between humans and coyotes be reduced or prevented? 

Design a public relations or education campaign to help residents in a town/neighborhood understand coyotes and limit negative or damaging interactions between coyotes and humans, pets, etc… Your campaign could include news releases, posters, flyers, public service annoucements for the radio, etc... What messages would you include when helping to educate young children? Adults?
