RESEARCH

RACCOON

PROJECT OUTLINE


In partnership with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, M
RF has discussed a research program to track the migration of Raccoons from New York into Ontario.  Their movements are of great practical interest, as Raccoon rabies is prevalent in the New York population, but has not yet become firmly established on the Ontario side of the St. Lawrence River.  Identifying the routes by which Raccoons cross the border will help in improving the efficiency of future vaccination efforts.  A more detailed outline of project methods and objectives will be posted here if this research program is put into action.
