Research Feature

Michigan ZoomIN

The Applied Wildlife Ecology (AWE) Lab in the Department of EEB is excited to announce that Michigan ZoomIN has officially been launched as one of 50+ projects on The Zooniverse! Michigan ZoomIN has been created by researchers who are studying spatial patterns in carnivores, as well as their prey, throughout the US state of Michigan. They need YOUR help to identify and describe the diverse suite of species they have captured images of in their surveys.

It's fun and easy to help identify wildlife photographs!
