    About This Project

    Our study aims to use camera traps to model the densities of several large mammals in Red Butte Canyon, Utah - one of the few remaining pristine watersheds in the Great Basin. Results will provide a baseline for other more populated or heavily used canyons along the Wasatch Front and will serve as a public outreach tool to communicate the importance of biodiversity and ecosystem services.
