Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
To document not only what animals live where, but also how they are affected by consumptive (i.e. hunting, trapping etc.) and non-consumptive (i.e. hiking, biking etc.) recreation.
We are using motion-sensitive cameras take short videos, triggering whenever a warm-blooded animal walks by, and saving these images to a memory card. The cameras are silent, and use an infrared flash, so usually the animals don’t even know they are being photographed. By volunteering for this project you will get a first-hand look at the forest animals, and help us collect important data for science and conservation. You will be part of a larger team of camera-trappers led by scientists at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences and the Smithsonian Institution, running a network of cameras across the east coast.
The data you collect will help us document not only what animals live where, but also how they are affected by consumptive (i.e. hunting, trapping etc.) and non-consumptive (i.e. hiking, biking etc.) recreation.
You will be one of the first participants in eMammal, and your feedback will help us prepare for expanded surveys in the future.
