Gwaii Haanas Biosecurity Monitoring

Primary tabs

This example project highlights photos of both native and introduced species, from an array of islands on the archipelago of Haida Gwaii, in Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve, NMCAR, and HHS, many of which host nesting seabird colonies at risk of impacts from introduced mammals, especially deer, rats and raccoons. Our camera deployments are of two types: some which are deployed for approximately one month every 3 years, and others which are permanently deployed and gather information continuously. Our deployments are for the sole purpose of monitoring incursions and invasions of introduced mammals, so that we may respond with appropriate management actions to maintain the biological integrity and breeding seabird populations of these unique islands.
