    "...Now, I’m proud to say, our scientists are moving beyond Chicago to explore urban wildlife in new areas with new partners. Urban Wildlife Institute Director Seth Magle, Ph.D., has teamed up with scientists at Butler University and the University of Wisconsin–Madison to install camera-trap networks in Indianapolis and Madison...."

    That's great. Such teamwork can only be beneficial. Congratulations!

    It will be for the partners to decide, but yes, we hope that there will be a citizen volunteer component to some of these cities as well!
