Last weekend, on a perfect – and so rare! – spring day, ENVS students Zoe Miller, Maddie Menges, Sam Donato, Jeremy Poe and Tori Chamberlain participated in the intensive international Cyber-Tracker certification course, which tested their ability to read track and sign in the landscape. They were accompanied by ENVS faculty Jason Hamilton, Tim Drake and Justin Sutera from Primitive Pursuits, as well as three others from the Greater Ithaca community.

It has since grown to become the only international standard for wildlife tracking.
