Wildlife Ecology in San Guillermo National Park, Argentina
Virtual Research in the Classroom
Become a wildlife ecologist and study the relationship between predators and their prey in the high Andes of South America. The activities below will introduce you to Emiliano Donadio and his research on pumas and vicunas in San Guillermo National Park in Argentina.
As you complete the activities, you will have the opportunity to:
- make hypotheses and predictions.
- collect and analyze data.
- use your results to reach a conclusion.
NOTE: All of the videos for this project are on YouTube. You may access them through the links on the individual pages, or you may access them all on the Science Posse's playlist on the University's YouTube channel. However, because YouTube is blocked in some schools, they can also be accessed from the University of Wyoming Multimedia Server.

When researchers complete their field studies, they examine their data in the context of the larger picture and report what they have learned. This synthesis often leads to new ideas to investigate further.
Synthesize and report your results.
