Mule deer and moose were documented since 2008 to heavily use a corrugated steel culvert at mile post (MP) 14 along US 91 in the Wellsville Mountains of northern Utah. The goal of this project was to learn of other species of animals that were within a half mile of the road but were not approaching the crossing struture. The hypothesis was that the species list for both at the structure and away from the structure at various distances would be identicial.
The I-90 Snoqualmie Pass East Project will reduce congestion, and improve safety and reliability along a 15-mile stretch of the highway from Hyak to the Easton, WA. The project corridor passes through the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest and intersects a critical north-south linkage zone for wildlife in the Cascade Mountains. Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) and its partners will help alleviate the effects of the highway by constructing crossing structures that connect wildlife and hydrology across the landscape, and restoring habitat throughout the project area.
The Cache Creek Conservancy manages a Nature Preserve in Woodland, CA. There are many species of animals here seasonally and year round and we hope to record and catalogue these animals, especially the ones that appear at night when the preserve is closed.
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.
This project is a case study for a Federal Highways Administration supported project developing remotely communicating wildlife cameras and server-side informatics tools. Wildlife populations in the East Bay open spaces are isolated from the rest of nature by I-680. There are very few crossing structures under this interstate, none of which were built for wildlife. Nonetheless, wildlife use these structures to move between the East Bay open spaces and the rest of the world. Without this movement, these populations would be isolated and subject to extinction.
