Beartracker Wildlife Tracking Project has many cameras set up to monitor wildlife in the northern California area. This area is rich in wildlife species diversity. Not only is the area home to the tallest trees in the world, but plenty of mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians also inhabit these forests. This project aims to survey the diversity of wildlife found in this area and make the data available to the public.
Our cameras are set to photograph wildlife on our small ranch at altitudes ranging from 1700 - 2100 ft . However, we are bordered on one side by a 1,000 acre conservation easement and are among thousands of acres of range land in the southern Sierra Nevada foothills and mountains . We are in a broad canyon in the drainage of the north fork of the Tule River - abutting NPS land and not far from the Golden trout wilderness.
Interstate 280 is a busy highway on the San Francisco Peninsula. It is also adjacent to wild open spaces for about 20 miles. This means that the native wildlife that live in these wild areas sometimes attempt to cross the highway. When they cross the surface, they usually get hit by a car. This project provides access to wildlife cameras placed at under-crossings that might provide wildlife with a safe way to cross the highway, underneath.

The Paunsaugunt mule deer herd is one of the most treasured mule deer herds in the western U.S. They spend their summers in Southern Utah, and migrate across US 89 to the borderlands of Utah and Arizona. In 2013 UDOT and Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (UDWR) worked together with multiple partners to create 12.5 miles of wildlife exclusion fencing and three new wildlife crossing culverts on US 89 East of Kanab Utah in the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. The goal of the project was to funnel the Paunsaugunt mule deer herd through these three new culverts and through three existing culverts and a bridge in their movements north and south, and thus reduce mule deer-vehicle collisions along this stretch of road. The monitoring project will be in place from 2013-2018. Twenty-eight cameras are positioned at the 7 structures and the 4 fence ends, along with a camera at each of two double cattle guards. The study is conducted by Patricia Cramer, research assistant professor at Utah State University.
