Day 1 of the “mink enrichment survey”

25 10 2016



Lauren Dawson, my new post-doc (who did an MSc with me a few years ago), piloted our new “mink enrichment survey” today, visiting the first of what we hope will be dozens of farms across Canada.

We have a year’s money from OMAFRA to find out what farmers feel does and does not work well, since they are now having to supply enrichments in what’s essentially and giant nationwide experiment. Here is one Pastel male cradling his golfball, on the farm she visited today.
