The Western Section of the Wildlife Society
2017 Basic Camera Trapping for Wildlife
July 14 - 17, 2017
Lassen Volcanic National Park, Lassen County, CA

Description Remote cameras have become an invaluable tool for wildlife research and management as an economic, non-invasive, and consistently effective way to document animals. This workshop will examine the pros and cons of commercially available camera traps, their use in the field, and case studies demonstrating their value. The goal of this workshop is to provide a comprehensive introduction to camera trapping equipment and methodology so that participants acquire the basic knowledge to plan, outfit, and implement their own surveys.

The workshop is suitable for biologists who have little to no experience in using remote cameras, as well as providing instruction for the basic user. Each participant will have hands-on experience setting up a variety of commercially available camera traps. Maximum registration: 20. A minimum of 16 participants must register prior to 6/25/17 or the workshop will be cancelled. A waiting list will be maintained.
