New study started in Svalbard
We have started a large carcass-project in Svalbard and the first pictures is already collected. It will be interesting to see how the predators behave. The project is a collaboration between Norwegian Polar Institute, COAT and Nord Universitet. To read more about this study see Norwegian Polarinstitue's article presenting the study (in Norwegian). The same study has been carried out by COAT in Varanger since 2005 and this year’s data collection is just finished.
