There is little published research about Maine’s canids (red foxes, gray foxes, coyotes), but much to learn about them. As the human population grows and habitat is altered or destroyed, human-wildlife interactions are expected to increase. This program will provide a general overview of the canids who call Maine home, offer recommendations of how we can reduce potential conflicts, and introduce a new Maine community science canid research initiative.
About the Presenter
Dr. Tammy Cloutier is an ethologist, author, and editor. Animals and animal behavior are two of her passions, and her PhD research examined the potential effects of human disturbance on endangered African painted dogs (also known as African wild dogs). As human and wildlife interactions increase, she’s found herself becoming more interested in finding ways humans and animals can coexist. She is also interested in integrating science and art to offer different perspectives for learning about and seeing this amazing planet we all call home.
