Cameras for conservation: Using technology to manage wildlife
As pressure on parks and protected areas increases from urbanization and population growth, Metro Vancouver Regional Park staff are deploying automated trail cameras to learn how wildlife use these landscapes and how they can be better managed to reduce human-wildlife conflict and habituation. Join Brian as he provides an overview on some of the camera trap monitoring programs taking place within the region, how the data are being used to inform park management and planning processes, and take a look at some of the unique wildlife and behavior captured on these remote cameras.
