We started a fox and coyote research project in and near the Twin Cities! iNaturalist contributors can help us to locate potential study animals! Please tell us about your observations of gray foxes, red foxes, and coyotes. Please be sure to click the location on the map to show us where it occurred AND allow the project to see your obscured locations when setting up your account!
