Developing a model for collecting big data for animal ecology, to provide insight on the values and impacts of the Florida Wildlife Corridor
The Corridor Observatory project uses camera traps and autonomous recording units (ARUs) to collect data to help us analyze occupancy and activity patterns for many species of wildlife, providing new insight into how our management shapes landscapes and impacts wildlife populations. Our research focuses primarily on large bodied, wide-ranging wildlife such as feral pigs, black bear, and Florida panther.
