Living with Lions Trail Camera Project
Become a Citizen Scientist with the Trail Camera Project
The Living with Lions Trail Camera Project collects visual data of mountain lions and other wildlife from trail cameras placed on properties throughout the North Bay, aiding in our understanding of overall wildlife densities and distribution in the region.
- Estimate density of collared and uncollared mountain lions and other wildlife
- Document presence or absence of wildlife based on habitat type
- Engage our community’s interest in our wild neighbors
Three easy steps to become a citizen scientist for the project and connect with the wildlife in your own backyard:
- Sign Up: Schedule an installation date by email: [email protected]
- Install: Together, we’ll scout for ideal trail camera locations and place camera(s)
- Monitor Wildlife: Every 3–4 months we’ll make a site visit to retrieve the photos, sharing these photos with you. You’ll also receive an update about the Living with Lions project.
Your role includes:
- Ability to check the memory card anytime
- Agree to not delete any photos
- Agree to not move the camera
Reducing conflict between lions, humans, and livestock
The images collected on your property help us understand the ecology in our region and knowing our wild neighbors can inspire us all to take steps to coexist with them!
