Results from our 2009 remote camera program
(Spring 2009-Winter 2009/2010)
From the spring through fall of 2009, Conservation Northwest’s Citizen Wildlife Monitoring Project conducted monitoring efforts in the Olympic National Forest, Colville National Forest, and throughout Washington’s central and north Cascades. We piloted a small effort to have volunteers monitor the successful reintroduction of fishers in the Olympic Peninsula in close coordination with the Olympic National Forest, Olympic National Park, and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. In northeast Washington, we hired an intern to conduct focused hair snare and remote camera research to detect the presence of lynx on the Colville National Forest. Finally through the existing Cascades Citizen Wildlife Monitoring Project we conduct in coordination with Wilderness Awareness School and I-90 Wildlife Bridges Coalition, we dedicated our greatest resources to recording wildlife presence in key connectivity areas and detecting the presence of rare species throughout the central and north Cascades.
In the winter of 2009-2011, we coordinated with Wilderness Awareness School and I-90 Wildlife Bridges Coalition again to conduct snowtracking transects in habitat near proposed crossing structures in the I-90 Snoqualmie Pass East Project and to launch pilot efforts to detect wolverine presence in the Cascades.
The results of these efforts are posted below, in two reports.
