On a cold February afternoon, 15 students, 2 lab assistants, and Drs. Duncan and Unger waged war against invasive species in the college woods for BIO222: Ecology and Evolution. It was a brutal battle, but we emerged, snow covered and exhausted.....VICTORIOUS!

Sorry is in Spanish, but is very interesting! http://www.surfosmagazine.com/nueva-especie-de-tiburon-descubierta-en-costa-rica/
By becoming part of the laboratory equipment, the students can experience the excitement of understanding and learning along with the enjoyment of the rides.https://www.facebook.com/MaryvilleCollege/videos/10153752682811952/
This is the start of what we hope will be a long term study involving a wide variety of projects and opportunities, but we need YOUR HELP!! From 1986-1994, 137 otters were released into Great Smoky Mountains National Park, but no follow up monitoring program was ever implemented. Before any type of controlled, concentrated study can be done efficiently or effectively, we need a wide swath look at where otters occur in the park and where they are most often seen. Repeat observations are fine! Be sure to upload your observations to i-naturalist the next time you see an otter in the park! http://www.inaturalist.org/projects/otter-spotter-in-great-smoky-mountains-national-parkhttp://www.knoxnews.com/news/local-news/otter-spotter-project-calls-on-citizen-scientists-to-participate_11716139
