How to Observe

Inspection Technique gameWildlife Damage Management requires an ability to look carefully for signs of animal presence.

Step 1.

In order to look carefully, you must

  • slow down and
  • focus on a particular area or item.

Scanning an entire image won’t be effective. You have to focus one spot at a time.

Look at the photo below. How many bull frogs can you see?
