The Unseen World: Using Remote Cameras to Discover Wildlife
Remote “trail” cameras that snap a picture or record video are now relatively inexpensive.
But how do you set one up?
And what is there to see other than the neighbor’s Golden Retriever?
So many things happen when humans aren’t around.
Bobcats recline in wildflower meadows.
Coyote mothers tend their pups.
With the grace of dancers, moose move through the forest while browsing on twigs and leaves.
With a pounce, a lynx secures its dinner underneath its massive paws.
And with the coming of night, this world moves into our backyards and parks.
Using remote cameras, Pete Abdu has recorded this unseen world.
Drawing on his knowledge of both wildlife biology and electrical engineering, Peter has spent over fifteen years designing and deploying remote cameras to capture wildlife on film.
His work has appeared in National Geographic magazine and BBC film productions.
During this program, Pete will share some of animal behaviors he’s filmed, behaviors that are intimate and rarely observed by humans.
He’ll discuss the conservation role remote cameras fill, documenting and monitoring rare animal species.
Finally, he’ll share some of the expertise that has yielded amazing images and familiarize you with readily available camera systems.
Find out how you can document the unseen world of your own backyard!
