Calgary Captured

Citizens engaged in urban wildlife monitoring

The Miistakis Institute in partnership with The City of Calgary have launched Calgary Captured – a multi-year wildlife monitoring and citizen science based program to study wildlife populations, their movement and behaviour, and enable informed conservation and management decisions that support healthy wildlife populations. There are over 60 motion-activated trail cameras in Fish Creek Provincial Park and other urban parks and green spaces through out the city that capture thousands of images per month, including wildlife species like deer, coyote, bobcat, fox, moose, cougar, black bear, and many others. 

The Friends of Fish Creek are pleased to be a partner for this project, which provides volunteers with the opportunity to identify local urban wildlife species and gather important data that will further our understanding of this city’s biodiversity.
