New Hampshire hosts a diverse suite of mammal species, from mesocarnivores like bobcats to large ungulates like moose. These animals are highly valued by many stakeholders and play critical ecological roles throughout the state. Effective monitoring programs are crucial to the conservation and management of these species, but their highly mobile and often cryptic nature makes them difficult to monitor. This presentation by Remington Moll, Assistant Professor at the University of New Hampshire, will describe a new research project between UNH and the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department that is evaluating the effectiveness of a state-wide mammal monitoring program using trail cameras and drones.
