Here’s a link to the recording of most of Michael Joyce’s presentation on fishers in Minnesota.  Michael is  a wildlife ecologist at the Natural Resources Research Institute at the University of Minnesota, Duluth. He described the history and current status of fishers and highlight current research into fisher ecology and management in Minnesota.

Fishers, a mid-sized carnivore in the weasel family, were nearly extirpated from Minnesota in the early 1990s. Since then, fishers have reestablished across the state and recently expanded their range into southern Minnesota and the Twin Cities Metro.

The meeting is free and open to the public.
