Congrats on Ben Carr’s Defense

Ben Carr successfully defended his Senior Undergrad Thesis titled “Wildlife Behavioral Response to a Global Pandemic.” For his research, Ben evaluated effects of the COVID-19 shutdown on wildlife diurnal activity across an urban to rural gradient. This was possible through a larger-scale collaboration looking at coyote boldness (more to come on that). Ben’s work was really cool in that it used both Google’s COVID-19 Community Mobility Reports and turkey harvest rates in Georgia to understand how wildlife responded to shifting human behavior during the lockdowns! You can read his thesis here!
