Learn about skunks at PEEC

-A A +A

Pajarito Environmental Education Center welcomes national skunk expert Jerry Dragoo, who talk at the Nature Center from 2-3 p.m. Nov. 11.
This adult and family talk is free to PEEC members and is $5 per person or $10 per family for non-members. Dragoo will talk about his years of skunk research and give a behind-the-scenes look at the PBS Nature episode, “Is That Skunk,” on which he was featured.
The skunk is one of the most recognized mammals in North America and, due to its use of scent glands as a defense mechanism, it also is one of the most maligned.
However, “the skunk” refers to more than the well-known striped skunk.
The Mephitidae (skunk family) is composed of 12 species, which occur primarily in the western hemisphere (four of these species are in New Mexico).
Skunks are a diverse group of carnivores living in a variety of habitats with different ecological requirements and a wide variety of behavioral and reproductive idiosyncrasies.
Skunks also can provide economic benefits, but occasionally, individual animals are perceived as nuisance animals.
