During the days, the camera traps take lots of pictures of tortoises. Not too surprising considering that the are set up outside tortoise burrows. I always get the biggest kick out of the strange creatures that go walking by at night. The photos are always black and white of course, but some of the creatures are pretty interesting.

web site and fixed the viewing permissions on the folders so that anyone could help us out by taking a look at some of the data and filling out the form. So, on the topic of great team work, it would be GREAT if other people would try it out too. I'd love to hear what you think!

Space Coast Science Education Alliance. They made this great flyer for the event. Unfortunately, due to some scheduling conflicts, some of our supporters will be at state science fair, and Ryan will be presenting at NSTA. Still, it should be a great opportunity to share our project with more people.
I think we have the google form and photo drive working now which will mean that anyone will be able to look at the pictures from the 114 acres and help us to analyze the data from them. I'm going to have a couple of people test it for me and then share the link here when it is ready to go live.

So many bobcat pictures. One at night.
My AP students spent some time looking at photos today and using a Google Form to identify animals and behaviors. They really seemed to enjoy it! They would narrate as they looked through the folders and point out interesting behaviors. I had them do a camera trap ID activity earlier this year, and they still seem to get a kick out of it. Because I set up a form ahead of time, all of their data was collected in real time and I could pull up a spreadsheet for data analysis.
I was out on the 114 acres this weekend downloading photos and moving the cameras. I have thousands of photos to sort through now, but I wanted to share a few from camera 5. It was set up in the scrub along a whole in the fence. There seem to be a lot of animals using it as a way to get in and out of the property. This is my favorite photo so far -- bobcat!
Then this adorable family of raccoons. I've got a google forms document worked up and a shareable link to the photo drives for the students to try out. Hopefully they will be able to look at the photos and begin to pull some data from them. More photos to come soon.
