Tracking Snow To estimate the distribution elusive carnivores, researchers rely on finding snow tracks, which often leads to a lot of work without conclusive results. Join two scientists as they repurpose an old technique in a way that may revolutionize how we study threatened species and manage our landscapes. Created during the 2018 International Wildlife Film Festival Filmmaker Labs, this film highlights the importance of conservation through collaboration by bringing together the scientific minds of two distinct branches of the U.S. Forest Service.   Directed by Tanya Martinez, Jaclyn Aliperti& J.P. Lawrence (USA, 2018, 5 min.)     Parrots in Peril: Miami's Wild Macaws Parrot lover and conservationist Daria Feinstein is on a mission to protect one of Miami's most spectacular wild residents: the blue-and-yellow macaw (Ara ararauna). Indigenous to Central and South America, these colorful parrots have established a small but well-beloved breeding population in Miami. Today, however, their numbers are crashing as poachers capture the macaws and their chicks for sale into the lucrative pet trade. Florida state law provides no legal protection for these non-native birds, but the state's wildlife agency considers them "non-invasive" because they don't seem to compete with or harm native species. Therefore, some municipalities have adopted "bird sanctuary laws" to protect them. How far should we go to protect non-native species, and can Miami's wild macaws be saved before it's too late?   Directed by Nathan Dappen& Neil Losin (USA, 2018, 8 min.)     Great Old Broads for Wolves Welcome to the Southwest, where the land is wild and the women…might be even wilder.
