PhD candidate, Erin Siracusa, has been selected as one of the top 75 entries for the NSERC sponsored Science, Action! contest. Participants were tasked with making a 1-minute video highlighting their research and showing how science is improving their lives. Erin, who is working with Dr. Andrew McAdam, is investigating the importance of social interactions for the behaviour and fitness of an 'asocial' species - squirrels. Her research is part of the Kluane Red Squirrel Project, a long-term collaborative research initiative located in the southwest Yukon.

From February 6th to March 2nd, you can watch and share Erin's video. Every view counts as 1 vote. The 25 videos with the most views on March 2nd will proceed to the judge's panel, where they will compete for one of 15 cash prizes!
