Get Involved

1. Go outdoors and start looking for raccoon tracks! If you find any signs of raccoons email us at or post a picture of the prints on our Facebook page! Lucky enough to see a raccoon while out tracking?! Upload the raccoon location to, or inform us and we can do it for you. Remember, always exercise caution when around wild animals!

2. For information on when and where our next community outreach event will be held, be sure to check out our blog. You will also be able to stay up-to-date with our research progress!

3. If you are interested in having the UWRP organize a hands-on, science presentation or activity related to our research just send us an email. We're happy to partner with local schools and community organizations!

4. Do you have raccoons living on or traveling through your property and want to help us with our research? You can help us determine where raccoons live and travel by allowing us to set up trail cameras on your property. Contact us at if you are interested in allowing us to set up a trail camera and/or a humane, live-trap on your property.

Please be aware that all raccoons captured by the UWRP are released within the area they were captured. For non-lethal ways to resolve human-wildlife conflicts, we encourage you to review the information compiled by The Humane Society of the United States
