Description

Come join Focus on Wildlife -- Cleveland Metroparks and venture into the urban wild. Help identify the creatures found throughout a 23,000 acre park system surrounding Cleveland, Ohio, in the middle of the United States. Cameras are used to detect animals in all kinds of parks, from natural areas to golf courses. Your help is needed to identify animals in the images. The results will be used to test whether ecological theory applies in urban systems and also to look at how people's perceptions of wildness relate to biodiversity.
