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.
