Our friends at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission are working on a survey of the distibution of Fox Squirrels in Florida and we can help. Since our community of racers are frequently outdoors and very conscious of the environment around them, we are in a perfect position to aid them in their efforts.
The fox squirrel, named for its fox-like tail, is a charismatic mammal approximately twice the size of the common gray squirrel. The purpose of this survey is to understand the current distribution of fox squirrel in Florida on a landscape level. This survey is part of a research project through the University of Florida. If you have any questions feel free to contact Courtney Hooker at firstname.lastname@example.org
The data collected in this survey depends on the people of Florida reporting their sightings so doing your part really goes a long way.
