DonateASC matches scientists with skilled explorers to collect data while out in the field. With this unique opportunity, researchers are able to push forward necessary conservation efforts , with valuable information provided by adventurers. Check out one of their recent projects monitoring the Unita Range for Canada lynx and wolverine, two of the Rocky Mountains most elusive and rare carnivores. For this project Gaia GPS was used to navigate to remote off-trail wildlife cameras.
