The Gotham Coyote Project is working to uncover answers to pressing questions about coyotes living in the Big Apple and beyond. Where do they live? How many are there? What do they eat? Why are they here? Should they be here?
These questions are critical to understanding not just what to expect of New York City’s coyotes and how to develop coexistence strategies, but also what to expect as coyotes expand into other areas of the Eastern seaboard so that residents can be proactive about avoiding conflicts when coyotes move into their neighborhood.
Gotham Coyote Project brings together scientists, students, and citizens to gather information from camera traps, scat, sighting reports and other data sources.
We are working alongside the project to provide professional level photography documenting field work, lab work, community outreach efforts and of course the coyotes themselves.
The portfolio of high-quality images we provide to the project assists them with increasing their reach, boosting public engagement and citizen science involvement, and gaining the attention and support of potential research funders.
