Wildlife camera monitoring in Vermont

Project description (English)

This project gathered and analyzed game-camera data on the frequency of under-highway wildlife movement through bridges and culverts in Vermont. Our analytical objective was to generate results-based recommendations for improving the permeability of highways in Vermont to increase the frequency of under-road movement of wide-ranging terrestrial species.
