Whisker Printing

POlar BeaRs

Past methods of mark and recapture have been less than ideal for both the bear and human. Whisker printing provides a non-invasive form of mark and recapture monitoring in which whisker printing software identifies polar bear whisker prints from photographs. Each bear has a unique whisker print, analogous to human fingerprints. 

In October 2013, students from ISAMR began a partnership with the software’s founder, mammalogist, Dr. Jane Waterman, to refine and test the validity of this less-invasive method. This research gives students the opportunity to partake in groundbreaking tracking and population estimation methods of polar bears in the Churchill area.
