After decades of working with communities to conserve mountain lions and other large carnivores, wildlife biologist and La Jolla native Jim Williams explores how wildlife thrives where conservation, community and culture overlap.


In "Path of the Puma: The Remarkable Resilience of the Mountain Lion," Williams celebrates wildlife research and conservation of ghost cats from Canada’s southern Yukon Territory to Tierra del Fuego in Argentina and Chile, exploring what makes this cat, the fourth carnivore in the food chain—just ahead of humans—so resilient and resourceful. He shares stories of magical landscapes, remarkable wildlife habitats, and the people who work to protect them.


Williams writes, “They are beating the odds, and their success provides a remarkable opportunity for wild nature to regain a toehold and to shape possibilities for the persistence of natural systems. They are hope for those of us who believe our future will depend, in large part, on finding the wild.”


Williams will talk about his book and his career at Warwick’s on Monday, May 13 and 7:30 p.m. Visit pathofthepuma.com for more information.

My husband seek on divorce and i see no reasons which i knew its for those bitches out there for almost 4 years and i tried all i could to have him back cos i really loved this man so much but i made a vow ain't gon lose him to any bitch. Sadly all my effort didn't work out.. We met at our early age in college and we both have feelings for each other and we got married happily for 5 years with no kid and he woke up one morning and told me he’s going on a divorce, i thought it was a joke and when he came back from work he tender to me a divorce letter and he packed all his belonging from my house and left. i was devastated and i tried all i could to have him back but all did not work. i was lonely for almost 4 years, So i contacted a man who says he is a spell caster and i told the spell caster what happened he said he will help me and he asked for his full name and his picture. i gave him that. At first i was skeptical but i gave it a try cos i have tried so many spell casters and there is no solution, so when he finished with the readings, he got back to me that he’s with a woman and that woman is the reason why he left me, The spell caster said he will help me with a spell that will surely bring him back, but i never believe all this he told me i will see a positive result within 3 days. 3 days later, he called me himself and came to me apologizing and he told me he will come back home. i can't believe this, it was like a dream cos i never believe this will work out after trying many spell casters and there is no solution. The spell caster is so powerful and after that he helped me with a pregnancy spell and i got pregnant a month later, we are now happy been together again and with lovely kid. This spell caster has really changed my life i will forever thankful to you, Doc Muna helped many of my friends too with similar problem and they are happy and thankful too. This man is indeed the most powerful spell caster i have ever experienced in life. Am Posting this to the Forum in case there is anyone who has similar problem and still looking for a way out. you can reach him EMAiL: marvelspelltemple@gmail. com

Natural herbs have cured so many illness that drugs and injection cant cure. I've seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. i read people's testimonies online on how they were cured of herpes, hiv, diabetics etc by Dr.OLIHA Kosu herbal medicine, so i decided to contact the doctor because i know nature has the power to heal anything. I was diagnosed with hiv for the past 6 years but Dr. OLIHA cured me with his herbs and i referred my aunt and her husband to him immediately because they were both suffering from herpes and they were cured too .I know is hard to believe but am a living testimony. There is no harm trying herbs. He is also a spell caster, he cast spells to restore broken marriages and a good luck spells to prosper and excel in life. Contact Dr. oliha on: OLIHA.MIRACLEMEDICINE@GMAIL.COM
