Still Wild at Heart
(30 minutes, Color, 2008)
This compelling documentary produced and directed by San-Francisco based filmmaker, Melissa Peabody, founder of Living World Films, is a virtual case study of the coyote’s natural range expansion continent-wide. While the film unfolds with the return of coyotes to the San Francisco Bay area, it pursues the coyote’s story across the North American landscape —from Northern California to New York City’s Central Park to Chicago, and points in between. Through interviews with coyote researchers, ecologists, and experts,- including Project Coyote Founding Director, Camilla Fox — viewers learn about the remarkable adaptability and intelligence of this successful native carnivore and the challenges and opportunities coyotes provide to both urban and rural communities.
