Urban red foxes on Prince Edward Island: REPORT YOUR SIGHTINGS

PEI Urban Fox ProjectWe need your help in conducting a study of the ecology and behaviour of urban foxes on Prince Edward Island. We need data about the distribution, abundance, movement, and habitat of island foxes. The best source of this data is you. 

This UPEI-PEI Fish & Wildlife Division research PROJECT DEPENDS ON PUBLIC PARTICIPATION. If you see a red fox in an urban or rural area, participate in this project by reporting your sighting on this website. Please feel free to elaborate with the details of your sighting. The more you can tell us, the more valuable your contribution.

To view reported urban red fox sightings to date, please visit our map.

wild lupineWe need your help recording the history of lupine flower colours across PEI.

We are asking why purple flowered plants were more common than the other two colours, pink and white. Stories suggest that purple coloured lupines were first to arrive with the other colours slowly appearing over time. Has the frequency of each colour changed over time?

Submitting your roadside or wild lupine photos will help us answer this question.
