How the project began

The Edmonton Urban Coyote Project began in Summer 2008 when Colleen Cassady St. Clair, a conservation behaviourist in the Department of Biological Sciences, approached the City of Edmonton about the possibility of studying coyotes in Edmonton. These relationships grew over the years and communication about coyotes now involves several city departments and programs. We value these collaborations, which keeps our work relevant to coyote coexistence.

Dozens of students, volunteers, and technicians have contributed to our work on urban coyotes and we are grateful to them all.
