Wildlife Solutions: Nocturnal Nuisances

A coyote howls at night in the snowy woods. This photo was captured by a trail camera as part of a study on fisher conducted by URI PhD student Laken Ganoe, in collaboration with RIDEM Division of Fish and Wildlife.

COYOTES, FOXES and FISHERS: Nocturnal mammals are greatly misunderstood, most of their fear-instilling actions are simply a part of their life-history and strategy for survival. Still, these critters can certainly become a nuisance, especially when they begin to den under decks and dine out of chicken coops. Learning why these creatures behave the way they do is the key to finding resolution. This session will help you identify what is attracting these animals to your yard, and how to make your property less hospitable. Learn about the discoveries made by the Narragansett Bay Coyote Study and see what we have already learned through the collaborative Fisher Project with URI. This will be a HYBRID program in partnership with the Louttit Library. Join us in-person at the library or tune in from the comfort of your own home! This program is FREE, but registration is required so that we can prepare materials and send Zoom links for those attending online.
