The Rhode Island Fisher Study is a collaboration between the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management and the University of Rhode Island. Our partners at RIDEM put together this amazing video of our work to help local RI students learn about the project and about fishers.
We are in the midst of our 3rd and final trapping season! Our crew has been busy out in the field checking and moving traps, and now we have 12 fisher on-air to track. Click the link below to see some videos of our newest recruits.
