New Year, New Ewe
Holy sea cow, it’s 2020. When did that happen?
Ok, I know you’ve seen this post before. The one that starts with “Is been a long time since I’ve posted anything here…“
We might have some catching up to do. I’ve nearly completed my Colorado Mammals project. I’ve photographed every species on my original list that is known to exist in the state, and a few more that were somewhat unknown. I can’t wait to share the photos and the journey with you.
I’m still looking for the elusive wolverine. In 2019, I expanded my efforts outside of Colorado into the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, and Glacier National Park. Unfortunately, I didn’t cross paths with a gulo but that search will definitely continue in 2020.
In other news, I’m working towards a masters degree in biology through the Miami University Advanced Inquiry Program, which is a partnership with the Denver Zoo. I also joined Natural Habitat Adventures as an Expedition Leader in 2019 and couldn’t be more thrilled! It’s OK if you drool a little when you see the trips that they offer (I know I did).
In 2020, I’m continuing my work with Wildlife Protection Solutions where we have assembled some next level camera trapping technology to get photos out of the field faster and identify species or poachers quicker than ever. This is really exciting stuff that has the potential to help find and protect some of the planet’s most endangered species. No joke!
In addition to camera trapping, I’m working with WPS to produce some very unique films on the endangered species we are fighting to protect. We have some exciting plans up our sleeves, but all I’ll say for now is that I left a little clue a little earlier in this blog post that might hint at what the first film will be featuring…
Enough about me. This year is all about the mammals. I have a pile of photos, stories, and adventure lined up for 2020 as I share the journey that has been my Mammals of Colorado quest. I hope you join me for the ride!
Wishing you all the best in 2020!
