Help researchers study black bears with iSeeMammals! Use the app to 1) take photos of bears and their sign (tracks, scat, hair, and markings), 2) track a hike, and 3) set up and monitor fixed/trail cameras. Your contributions will inform bear management in New York. Help pages offer identification tips and suggestions for collecting and submitting quality data.

iSeeMammals is a citizen science project that currently focuses on black bears in New York. Hikers, hunters, trackers, naturalists, and just about anybody who spends time in nature can collect data on the presence and absence of black bears. This data will be used to estimate the distribution, occupancy, and other population patterns of bears across large landscapes.

Visit to explore galleries of photos submitted by other iSeeMammalists, participate in contests, and learn about black bear ecology and management.
