Deployment of Camera Traps
Saturday morning we were lucky enough to go out to the sight to set up our cameras.
We scouted for burrows and worked to set up our cameras to see what is living in them.
Ryan took GPS readings on each camera so that we can make sure we find them later. Some of the burrows were quite secluded.
Right now we are focusing on abandoned burrows. Part of the role of Gopher Tortoises as keystone species is setting up burrows that are inhabited by lots of other animals. Hopefully we will see how is coming in and out of these burrows now that the Gopher Tortoise has moved on.
