Life as a Deer in a Changing World

I'm Sophie Gilbert, and I study how deer are affected by changing habitat and climate in a landscape that's been heavily altered by human activities.

A newborn Sitka black-tailed deer is fitted with a radio collar, allowing us to track its movements and survival through time. It will face challenges from predators, winter weather, and competition with other deer. (Photo by Sophie Gilbert)
