Researchers Hope Cameras Will Shed Clues On Coyote Behavior

Aug 5, 2019

A system of cameras is being set up in north Georgia in hopes of capturing images of coyotes and learning more about them.

Researchers with the Atlanta Coyote Project are working with partners across the nation to study the effects of coyotes and urban wildlife in metro Atlanta, according to the Associated Press.

Berry College professor Chris Mowry said 40 cameras — from Zoo Atlanta to Milton, Georgia — will be soon be in place.

It's part of a partnership with the Urban Wildlife Information Network of Chicago.


Researchers said the cameras will allow Atlanta Coyote Project to make comparisons about wildlife in Atlanta and across North America.

Several other organizations are involved from cities such as Denver; Los Angeles; Austin, Texas; and Madison, Wisconsin.
