The group's goal is to make the ESU community more aware of the rich diversity of wildlife to be found on campus.

Please contact Thomas C. LaDuke (Biology) with any questions about the Wildlife and Habitat Group.

Current Projects

  • Inventory important wildlife habitat on campus. Identify wildlife that use these.
  • We have inventories of some animal groups (including birds, reptiles, amphibians, some insect lists) that have been documented on campus, these need to be organized and maintained in a centralized location. Additional inventories needed.
  • Cleanup and maintenance of important habitat areas – need to initiate this process
  • Coordinate identification of wildlife areas with Healthy Watersheds initiative on campus

Future Plans

  • Produce photographic guides to wildlife on campus
  • Produce an interactive site where students and faculty can report interesting wildlife sightings, post photos
  • Produce guidelines about how campus community should, or should not interact with wildlife.
