Welcome to the Lincoln Fox Project!

This iNaturalist project is part of a larger wildlife research project taking place through the University of Nebraska-Lincoln School of Natural Resources. Our research is focused on understanding the distribution, diets, and disease exposure of red foxes in urban and rural areas of Lancaster County, Nebraska. Red foxes can serve as sentinels of many diseases including zoonotic diseases, which are shared by animals and people. Investigating diseases in local red fox populations can provide important information on wildlife health and the presence of viruses, bacteria, and parasites in our urban and rural environments that could be transmitted to people or pets.

The numbers and diet of foxes in an area can influence their exposure to disease in the environment and through contact with other animals. Therefore, estimating red fox abundance in urban and rural areas is an important step in understanding disease distribution and transmission. ...more ↓
