Red Fox Sighting Report

PEI Urban Fox ProjectWe need your help in conducting a study of the ecology and behaviour of urban foxes on Prince Edward Island. We need data about the distribution, abundance, movement, and habitat of island foxes. The best source of this data is you. 

This UPEI-PEI Fish & Wildlife Division research PROJECT DEPENDS ON PUBLIC PARTICIPATION. If you see a red fox in an urban or rural area, participate in this project by reporting your sighting on this website. Please feel free to elaborate with the details of your sighting. The more you can tell us, the more valuable your contribution.
