The Minnesota Wildlife Tracking Project is dedicated to sharing the art and science of wildlife tracking.

We host several gatherings each moth; conduct wildlife tracking surveys; offer tracker training and certification through CyberTracker North America; and generally support one another in deepening our connections to ourselves, to others, and to the natural world.
