Wow, this is so interesting -- and those photos are great!  
What do you bait the fishers for? Is it to take photos, or for populations counts? Or... something else entirely? Curious to hear more!

We use the bait to determine whether there are fisher in the area. We are studying the population dynamics of the local fisher prior to and after forest thinning activities in the area to determine their affects on them. Please read more about our work at under the fisher team. Thank you for your interest!!

Are you still collecting single socks?

The program is no longer collecting socks. They received enough in the initial drive to finish the research. Thanks for asking.

Do you still need old socks? Those without holes. I volunteer at a charity thrift store where I sort donations as they come in. We get lots of socks but we do not sell them so they are discarded. Do you still need socks? I can get lots. I have a bag at home that I got yesterday. Let me know. I will be camping at Fallen Leaf Campground next week at South Lake Tahoe. Where are you located? They would be easier to deliver vs. mailing. Dorothy

We are no longer collecting old socks, but we appreciate your interest and generosity.
