To estimate the distribution of elusive carnivores, researchers rely on finding snow tracks, which often leads to a lot of work without conclusive results. Join two scientists as they repurpose an old technique in a way that may revolutionize how we study threatened species and manage our landscapes. Created during the 2018 International Wildlife Film Festival Filmmaker Labs, this film highlights the importance of conservation through collaboration by bringing together the scientific minds of two distinct branches of the U.S. Forest Service.
