  1. Great job with introduction, explanations of your projects and pictures. Great pictures tell a great story.

  2. A good study of a significant issue as urbanism expands. Thank you for analyzing the problem and finding some significant issues. It would be good to expand this next time with more varied sites and species. Perhaps us wildlife cameras to track nighttime animals; Very well presented and good interview
