As I mentioned earlier, a big part of the Census Techniques course is planning your own census – in the form of a project proposal to an agency! I’ll be working with monitoring the Willow Ptarmigan population, but good ornithologists might notice I’ve sneaked in an islandic subspecies of Rock Ptarmigan on the cover photo.

Other classmates have picked species ranging from a newly discovered bat (Myotis alcathoe) to the Arctic Fox or Atlantic Salmon – so we’ll be sure to see our fair share of different census techniques represented!
