Camera Trapping - January Meeting
Camille M. Rich, STBCTMN member, presented on Camera Trapping to document wildlife. Camille is the proud owner and steward of a small piece of endangered Tamaulipan thornscrub -- El Mesteño Ranch -- located in the South Texas Sand Sheet in Northwestern Hidalgo County, Texas.
One of her passions is documenting species that visit a watering hole that she installed to support wildlife. In addition to using old-school means of detecting and documenting, she has also implemented the use of trail cameras in order to facilitate and advance the body of data she is collecting. Camera trapping can open up a whole new world for you -- even if it is just to document species visiting the feeders in your backyard. It is another tool that one can use to learn more about the world around them.
