Museums Connect eMammal International
eMammal International connects middle school classrooms culturally and scientifically through citizen science camera trap research. Funded through the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and administered by the American Alliance of Museums, eMammal International is a collaboration between the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, Bombay Natural History Society, and Museo de Paleontologia de Guadalajara. These museums work with middle school teachers and students in North Carolina, U.S., India, and Jalisco, Mexico to run camera traps from their classrooms. Data collected by students are used to understand how mammals respond to human development from natural to urban environments.
