Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary will conduct new research with the help of citizen scientists, thanks to an environmental science research grant awarded by the Vermont Institute of Natural Science and the Student Conservation Association.

The grant provides funding for a conservation intern to work on wildlife research projects, including horseshoe crab monitoring, dragonfly and damselfly inventories, and breeding bird and salamander surveys.

Zoe Turcotte, a graduate of Unity College with a bachelor’s degree in wildlife biology, will help to conduct research and monitoring activities and coordinate with citizen science volunteers who help gather data for breeding bird, odonate, amphibian, and horseshoe crab monitoring projects.

For more information on becoming involved in any of these projects, call the Edgartown Mass Audubon sanctuary at 508-627-4850.
