        Scientist Profile: Wildlife Biologists

        Wildlife biologist John Beckmann joins biologist and dog handler Aimee Hurt as she combines her talents to train her dog Wicket to find black bear, grizzly bear, wolf, and mountain lion scat (i.e., poop) in the area surrounding Yellowstone Park. This research helps scientists analyze if carnivores are living in the area. John says carnivores are like an umbrella. "If we protect them, we protect all the animals in the ecosystem."

        This video is available in both English and Spanish audio, along with corresponding closed captions.
