Wildlife Tracking in New England
Images and Stories of Nature’s Who-Done-Its
This slideshow presentation will introduce attendees to the world of wildlife through the eyes of a local naturalist. Andy Dobos, naturalist, educator and certified wildlife tracker, will recount tales of personal tracking adventures. These stories unravel mysteries left in tracks, encounters with wildlife and discoveries of hidden animals living along side each of us.
Through dramatic stories written in dirt and snow, Andy will illustrate how knowledge of animals adaptations for survival allow us to predict or confirm their actions. The presentation will also demonstrate the scientific method at work in an informal, exciting and accessible way as observations come together to prove or disprove hypotheses.
