Spring is just around the corner. Since the warmer temperatures in eastern North Carolina cause bears, foxes, deer and other mammals to become more active, now is the perfect time to take part in a massive camera trapping project to help uncover the secrets of local wildlife.  Public Radio East's Mac McKee speaks with Biologist with the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences and NC State University Roland Kays about the statewide project, the largest ever mammal survey of its kind.
