Sagehen Outreach

An introduction to the Sagehen Creek Field Station Outreach program.


Predator reaction to animal coloration.

Sagehen researcher Jen Hunter studies predator response to animal coloration.

She creates taxidermy mounts of the same animals with different coloration, then puts them in the field with a camera trap to see how predators respond. Watch the video to see what happens.
