ACTION ALERT: BE AN OTTER SPOTTER

COULD YOUR YARD HELP RESEARCHERS?

Is your yard a stomping ground for cougars, coyotes, raccoons, skunks or bears? Would you like to see what passes through your yard even when you’re not around? We’re looking for community members like you to allow us to place a remote camera on your property to collect data for our new research study: the Washington Urban–Wildland Carnivore Project.
