We know that there are a wide variety of species around Los Angeles, but little is known about the animals that live with the 3.9 million people in the city of LA.Help us learn more about these urban animals at www.zooniverse.org/projects/lawildlife/wildlife-of-los-angelesWild GabonLarge mammals play crucial roles in maintaining the unique nature of Lopé National Park's forest-savannah mosaic. However, they are understudied and are faced with threats which are prevalent around the forest edge of this transitional landscape.We want to estimate large mammal population around the forest edge and understand their interaction with the landscape. Results from this study will be used to inform effective conservation interventions.Help us study African mammals at www.zooniverse.org/projects/pangorilla/wild-gabonWildwatch Burrowing OwlThe western burrowing owl needs your help. Unusual among owl species, this pint-sized raptor lives in elaborate underground burrows. These owls cannot dig their own burrows, and instead “reuse” excavated dens dug by ground squirrels and other fossorial (burrowing) animals. With its penchant for open, native grasslands, the burrowing owl has been on a collision course with humans throughout much of Southern California. Your efforts will give researchers a clearer understanding of burrowing owl ecology and behavior, as well as visitors (and predators) to the burrows. The information gathered will help land managers balance land use (development) and wildlife conservation.Help us save the burrowing owl at www.zooniverse.org/projects/sandiegozooglobal/wildwatch-burrowing-owlThanks so much for all your help on these projects and all the others at www.zooniverse.org!Grant & the Zooniverse teamFacebook | Twitter | BlogUnsubscribe Notice: You are receiving this email because you have taken part in a Zooniverse project.
