Tracy Timmins is a doctoral candidate at the Faculty of Environmental Studies, York University, investigating Torontonians’ encounters with eastern grey squirrels with the aims of supporting coexistence and identifying strategies to prevent, mitigate, or resolve conflicts effectively.

Tracy would like to interview people who have had conflict with squirrels about their experiences. Interviews will be approximately 45 minutes to one hour. Participants will receive a $10 Starbucks gift card.
