Episode 74- Falkland foxes

In this episode of Naturally Speaking, Mar Pineda catches up with fellow Masters of Research (MRes) student Bugge Vick to talk about some of his field work. Bugge’s research project focused on the South American grey fox (Lycalopex griseus), recently introduced onto the Falkland Islands – a remote archipelago in the South Atlantic. In this podcast, he tells us about his experience participating in population counts, and collecting scat (faecal samples) to study the fox’s diet.

Note: The project was supported by SAERI, the South Atlantic Environmental Research Institute, and not by the South American Environmental Research Institute, as it is stated in the podcast.
