Education Outreach Efforts here at Amherst College Make Local Headlines

In this September article from the Daily Hampshire Gazette, Biology Professor Thea Kristensen shares Amherst College's role in a collaborative research project titled "MassBears." This multi-agency project also involves the state Division of Fisheries and Wildlife, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and the Massachusetts Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit.

MassBears "aims to estimate population size and distribution and provide other information about bear movement and conflict with humans.

'The more data you have, the better picture you can get of what's happening," said Dr. Thea Kristensen, a member of Amherst College's biology department and this project's leader. 'This gives a way for our community in Massachusetts to participate in the project.'"
