Christopher Plummer, a Geography and Planning Master’s student in the Biodiversity, Conservation and Policy program, has recently discussed his work to assess white-tailed deer abundance and habitat preferences in the Albany Pine Bush Preserve with the aid of thermal imaging drones. His study complements work that has already been performed and will help the Preserve staff to better understand the seasonal habits of white-tailed deer in the area. Christopher's presentation is titled, Using Drones to Assess the Winter Habitat Preference and Abundance of White-tailed Deer in the APBP.
