Rare Carnivore Monitoring in the Uinta Mountains

Volunteers from Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation, with support from the the National Forest Foundation, and in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service, gathered more than 3000 camera-nights of data on wildlife in remote areas of the High Uintas Wilderness. A crew of thirty hikers, ultra-marathon runners, and backpackers maintained 30 cameras that required hikes of 10 to 25 miles to reach. During four months the project recorded 15 species and a database of 20,000 images and videos.
