Volunteers Needed for Squirrel Census in NYC's Central Park


A group of researchers are seeking volunteers to conduct a squirrel census in New York City's Central Park this fall. AMNY reports that the Squirrel Census, which as conducted Eastern gray squirrel counts in other cities since 2012, wants to map out the furry critters from October 6 to October 20. Central Park will be their biggest project to date. "It just made sense to give ourselves the biggest challenge that we could," Jamie Allen, creator of the Squirrel Census, says. "We consider it the moon of parks." The collected data will be used to create an interactive, multimedia map of the park. "It's a unique way to look at the urban greenspace," Allen notes. "You will see [the park] through the eyes of the squirrel and you will learn the personalities of the Central Park squirrels."
