A Recent Innovation Consultancy Project
Deer Southold Town. An exploding deer population has impacted the economy, health and safety of Its residents. The current deer management program was limited by a lack of specific data that would create effective modifications and public awareness. The challenges of designing a census of moving herds, including data acquisition and its assessment, were seen as insurmountable and beyond budget. The Innovation Consultancy identified the issues as one of ecology and statistical analysis. Experts from the Departments of Ecology and Applied Mathematics, in association with Brookhaven National Laboratory, created a census model that is being executed with existing municipal resources—one which will inform and improve the effectiveness of the Town’s deer management program.
