Remotely triggered cameras assist us in monitoring fishers, allowing us to get a glimpse of the animals without disturbing them. We use these cameras for a variety of tasks including:
- Documenting kits at den sites.
- Monitoring den site activity (males visiting, female coming and going, possible predators)
- Finding un-collared juveniles or off-air animals
- Searching for animals in previously uninhabited areas.
Cameras are often used in conjunction with hair shares, in order to collect genetic data. Additionally, many of the cameras record a small amount of environmental data when a picture is taken.
