IERC along with several agency and interdisciplinary collaborators are working on the emerging issue of various toxicants in forest wildlife. This collaboration includes ecologists, biologists, toxicologists, and pathologists from federal, state and regional agencies, along with academia and other non-profits. IERC is leading this consortium to investigate and decipher where, what and why toxicants like anticoagulant rodenticides are exposing and killing sensitive forest carnivores such as fishers and martens. Our goal is to generate and provide the scientific data necessary for conservation actions aimed at eliminating this threat.
