Conservation Northwest Seeks Wildlife VolunteersConservation Northwest Seeks Wildlife Volunteers
Our good friends at Conservation Northwest are seeking help tracking wildlife over the next several months. Sounds interesting!
Would you like to get out into the woods this spring and summer and help wildlife at the same time? Volunteer to be on one of Conservation Northwest's remote camera teams. Our Cascades Citizen Wildlife Monitoring Project depends on volunteers like you! This project is a joint effort between Conservation Northwest, I-90 Wildlife Bridges Coalition, and Wilderness Awareness School to conduct citizen monitoring of wildlife in Washingtons Cascades mountains.
The goal of the project is to track the presence of all wildlife using habitat near the proposed crossing structures along I-90 as well as to document and collect data on wildlife presence in core habitat areas of the North Cascades, with some cameras targeted towards rare species such as lynx, wolverine and the North Cascades grizzly. For more information, we have a webpage on the program at: http://www.conservationnw.org/northcascades/centralcas-remote-camera and http://www.i90wildlifebridges.org/monitoring.htm
You can also view some of the some of the great wildlife photos here that we captured last year on our cameras, including pine martens along I-90 and wolverines in the North Cascades (more photos to come)!
