Abstract

This project focused on the issue of squirrel safety and environmental harmony on the Western campus. Through data research, staff interviews, and field monitoring I was able to define my thesis. Squirrels are a vital part of our campus ecosystem and we should not harm them with unnatural food sources. I found that squirrels on campus were becoming dependent on the human population for food via our trash. In order to help solve the problem, my solution was to attempt to alter human behavior by spreading awareness. I worked with Western's Communications and Social Media Department as well as the Marketing Department to get word out. An interview was released detailing my project and providing informative tips on how changing our trash habits would help the squirrels and contribute to a healthier environment for all.
