Camera Trapping Your Wildlife Neighbors

April 21 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

A trail camera is a rugged, weather-proof camera that can be mounted and left in place for long periods of time. It triggers to take photos or videos when an animal passes in front of it.

Janet Pesaturo, nature guide and author, will introduce trail cameras, how they work and how to set them up and then discuss smart camera placement so that you too can capture photos and videos that reveal the secret habits of animals. These “camera traps” are taking wildlife research by storm because they are a noninvasive way to literally shed new light on the private lives of wild creatures. But you don’t need to bea scientist. Anyone with curiosity, persistence, and an inexpensive trail camera can study cutting edge animal behavior topics.

This will be a free online presentation hosted by the Camden Public Library.

Pesaturo’s first book, “Camera Trapping Guide“, is the book she wishes had existed years ago when she started camera trapping. She uses trail cameras and her tracking skills to study animal behavior and to provide data to local conservation organizations. She has a masters degree in Conservation Biology and a level III CyberTracker certificate in Track & Sign. Janet travels around the country tracking and camera trapping everything from mouse to moose.
