Remote Cameras

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.
