Product Description: ​For my Pride Product, I will travel into local wilderness and employ methods of
animal population observation and tracking in order to determine to the best of my ability the local
population levels of species such as white tail deer. This process will be fully documented and explained
as I am performing the observation. I will compile my research into a convenient presentation that
includes the documentation of my time in the woods, as well as the complicated calculations I perform in
order to extrapolate the population levels of the animals. Finally, my presentation will include researched
recommendations for local government regarding wildlife management based on my calculated
population levels.
