INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indiana Department of Natural Resources is looking for volunteers to help get a clearer picture of the state’s wildlife.

The DNR wants people who have at least 10 acres and are willing to set up a provided trail camera on their property this fall for a study called “Snapshot IN.”

Wildlife biologist Shawn Rossler says the agency hopes to find between 20 and 100 volunteers. He says gathering accurate data on the distribution and number of wildlife species statewide can be challenging for biologists.

Rossler says the project’s aim is to understand how animals are using various land types in Indiana. Snapshot IN will run during October and November.

Those interested should go to the Indiana Fish and Wildlife Division’s volunteer program website and click on “Service Project Listings.”
