Markus is a Natural Resource Management Specialist with Metro Vancouver Regional Parks and has been using camera traps within regional parks for 7 years.

Specific studies have targeted black bears and domestic dogs. Survey results are used to inform Park Management Plans and human-wildlife conflict mitigation.
