Project: Improving the Camera Trap Abundance Estimates of White-Tailed Deer
Project Status: Ongoing
Project Description: MRG uses camera traps to monitor deer abundance. This method relies on high quality photographs of branch-antlered deer. Lucia will be experimenting with lures to see if she can “keep deer in frame” to increase the quality and quantity of deer photos.
