Review Camera Trap Images
University of Nebraska Omaha and Nebraska Game and Parks Commission are conducting a camera trap survey project across Nebraska. The goal of this project is to find observations of the rare eastern spotted skunk in the state. We are asking for help to review and tag the images collected. Please visit Nebraska Wildlife Watch on Zooniverse.org to learn more!
