America's Prairie Reserve: Camera Trapping

Screen Shot 2020-02-21 at 9.24.27 AM

Ecologists from the Smithsonian set up hidden camera traps around the American Prairie Reserve in Montana. The photos they collect will help build a clearer picture of the ecosystem--what animals are present and when, how species interact, which habitats they prefer, and whether their land-use changes with the seasons.

Accessible for free April 18-25.
