Calgary Captured – Urban Wildlife on Film
Thursday, March 21, 2019 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Fish Creek Environmental Learning Centre Shannon Terrace, Fish Creek Provincial Park
Presented by Vanessa Carney, Calgary Parks, The City of Calgary
Vanessa Carney is a landscape ecologist with Calgary Parks, investigating questions around how we can improve our approach to planning and management of urban parks to protect biodiversity. Calgary Captured, developed as part of The City’s 2015 BiodiverCity strategy, is helping to fill in gaps in The City’s collective knowledge around which wild species are successfully making a living in Calgary’s natural spaces and how well The City is doing in terms of planning for and maintaining healthy, connected ecosystems to support habitats and the species that rely on them. Camera images of wildlife found across the city in 13 municipal parks and Fish Creek Provincial Park provide data for this program. Vanessa will share the results and insights from Calgary Captured, highlighting findings from cameras placed in Fish Creek Provincial Park. This presentation will also examine how Calgary Captured data from Fish Creek Provincial Park compares with citywide patterns of bobcat, coyote, moose and others species detections.
