Boston Globe interviews Evans for article about “golden age” of wildlife
Bryn Evans, postdoctoral student at the University of Maine, spoke to the Boston Globe about her research about wildlife in Maine. As part of her Ph.D. research, Evans placed 600 motion-activated cameras all over the state and monitored them for four years, taking more than a million photos of wildlife. “Every time I pulled out a memory card and looked at it, it was like Christmas morning. I was expecting to find dead zones, but there were animals everywhere — martens, fishers, red fox, bobcats, bears, lynx, weasels, you name it. I had 16 different terrestrial animals walk by a single camera in a two-week period. They were here before we built our lawns, and now they’re coming back,” Evans said.
