This project's goal was to investigate hunting (consumptive) and hiking (non consumptive) recreational effects on wildlife throughout the mid-Atlantic region.
Middle school classrooms in the United States are collecting data on local mammal populations.
Adirondacks, New York USA, 2000-2002 - The objective of this project was to survey the carnivores of Northern New York and establish the effects of land use change on their distribution, habitat requirements, and interactions. In addition to camera traps, track plates and scat surveys were used to detect carnivores.
Appalachian Trail, Virginia, USA, 2007-2009 - Citizen-science based wildlife monitoring project using the Appalachian Trail as a MEGA-transect. Data was used to assess anthropogenic and landscape effects on mammal occupancy in the AT corridor.
This 2010 study in Barro Colorado Nature Monument (BCNM), Panama, sought to determine the community and abundance of mammals within different sized occupying islands and insulated peninsulas in the Panama Canal.
This collection is taken from two studies on Barro Colorado Island, Panama Canal, Republic of Panama aimed to determine the community of mammals and their use of Attalea butyracea and Astrocaryum standleyanum, two fleshy-fruited palm tree species.
Our study was conducted at Washington University in St. Louis’ Tyson Research Center, located 25 miles (40 km) southwest of Saint Louis, Missouri (388310 N, 908330 W; mean annual temperature 13.58C; mean annual precipitation 957 mm). The 800-ha research center is located on the northeastern edge of the Ozark ecoregion and is largely dominated by deciduous oak-hickory forest. Following moderate grazing and selective logging during the early 1900s, the property was acquired by the U.S.
This project is run by the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences and is focused on surveying mammals along an urban-rural gradient around the greater Raleigh-Durham, NC area. If you would like to participate in this project, please sign up at http://goo.gl/forms/LdCiMN9Avp
This project is run by the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences and is focused on collecting camera-trap data from anyone who owns their own camera trap and wishes to survey their yard, town or adjacent natural area. It is open to participation from any volunteers owning a Bushnell or Reconyx brand camera.
This project focused on the effects of ecotourism related trail use and infrastructure on wildlife composition and abundance at the Lapa Rios Ecolodge on the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica.
This is a survey of Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site aiming to quantify bear activity in and around the NHS.

This project is run by the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences to survey the mammals that use sustainable features, such as compost piles and vegetable gardens, in backyards around Raleigh, NC.
The NY Metro Wildlife Network is studying wildlife in the greater NY Metropolitan Area. We use camera traps to investigate how several species are able to make a living along this vast urban-rural gradient.
This project belongs to Wildlands Network.
Water for Wildlife is a multi site collaboration that unites academics, researchers and citizen scientists to utilize camera traps for the common goal of collecting data on wildlife abundance and distribution and making it accessible for others.
This study assesses terrestrial vertebrate species richness and relative abundance across three sites along a precipitation gradient in Central Panama. Data from this survey will be paired with measures of tick ecology and abiotic variables to determine how host availability correlates with tick abundance and tick species richness both spatially and temporally. Ultimately, this study aims to evaluate the extent to which climate change will impact tick-borne disease ecology in Panama.
The NC chapter of The Nature Conservancy owns and manages over 100,000 acres in the state of NC, with the goal to protect and conserve biodiversity. We are using camtraps to assess wildlife presence at our preserves, and thus better monitor the impact of our land protection efforts at a large scale, as well as assess the effectiveness of our management actions at individual sites.
The Virginia Coast Reserve, headquartered in Nassawadox, VA, has protected over 40,000 acres of vital habitat including barrier islands, marshes, and coastal uplands on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
The Learn and Serve Environmental Anthropology Field (LEAF) School at Edmonds Community College partners with tribes, government agencies, and non-profit organizations to engage students in the application of traditional ecological knowledge to contemporary problems. Current projects include monitoring wildlife corridors in Japanese and Big Gulch for the City of Mukilteo and Snohomish County.
