The presence of coyotes in an urban setting like Atlanta (or on Berry’s campus) usually triggers a predictable set of responses from the community, ranging from fear and concern to curiosity and wonder. Our research team aims to help build a better public understanding of coyote behavior and to help prevent conflict and promote peaceful coexistence with the coyotes in our area.
Coyotes are naturally elusive animals who typically evade detection by humans, but technology is now allowing unprecedented access to their lives through the use of remote cameras and electronic tracking devices.
With your help, new electronic monitoring equipment will allow us to observe and study coyotes, particularly those living in close proximity to humans.

Thank you for your support!
In early 2020, we helped to rescue a unique black coyote who was frequenting neighborhoods in portions of Cobb County in metro Atlanta. This coyote was not behaving aggressively, but instead was overly comfortable around humans and dogs, thereby creating an untenable situation. Fortunately, we were able to capture this coyote (a young male now named Carmine) and relocate him to the Yellow River Wildlife Sanctuary in Lilburn, GA, where he will now serve as an educational ambassador.
With your help, we can continue our scientific study of these fascinating animals and provide support for public education, including the long-term care of Carmine.
