Nov. 24, 2014

SENR Wildlife Ecologist Stan Gehrt's urban coyote research is featured on National Geographic's website. The article, Downtown Coyotes: Inside the Secret Lives of Chicago's Predator, describes some of Gehrt's newest research on how urban coyotes interact with the landscape.  A video also accompanies the article and let's viewers watch a coyote run through the city streets of Chicago. The coyote in the video is fitted with a National Geographic Crittercam. According to the article, this is the first time this technology has been used on urban coyotes.
