Natural Resources: Wildlife
Marin Wildlife Picture Index (WPI) Project
MMWD is partnering with Marin County Parks, California State Parks, and the National Park Service in a study to improve our understanding of local wildlife. Beginning in September 2014, approximately 100 wildlife cameras were placed throughout eight parks and preserves for a three- to four-month trial period.
“This is a very ambitious project,” said MMWD biologist Janet Klein. “Without support from volunteers and other wildlife researchers, we will have a hard time maintaining the wildlife cameras long enough to compile the data we need to help us address wildlife needs in rapidly changing environments. Citizen Scientists will be key to this project’s long-term success.” To request information on how to join the Citizen Science effort, please contact email@example.com.
