This is Audubon Society of Central Arkansas's monthly meeting. All are welcome to tune in. After the presentation we will conduct our business. This month's speakers are Hendrix students Keane Sammon and Arianne Prodehl. For the Central Arkansas Urban Wildlife Project, Hendrix College has partnered with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and the Urban Wildlife Information Network to study wildlife activity in the central Arkansas region. Their research uses data from motion-sensor game cameras to survey various animal species in urban green spaces to investigate how proximity to cities affects wildlife ecology and behavior. They will share their findings on the daily activities of mammals and how their behavior is impacted by urbanization. They will also discuss general trends of bird diversity in the parks located around the Little Rock metro area.
