Today we learned how to prepare small mammal traps and set them out in a 100m x 100m grid. Making our way through the very thick forest brambles was hard, hard work! We prepared and set out 100 of these traps!
It is very important to study the small mammals because they are good indicators of how the rest of the food web is doing. These smaller creatures are the foundation of food chains.
We will be checking the traps tomorrow to see if we have had any furry visitors =)
Next, it was Time...to Build!
