Step-by-step instructions for WildTrax users outlining data management and analysis.

ARUs

Autonomous recording units (ARUs) collect information on vocalizing species (species that make sounds) such as birds, amphibians, mammals and bats.

Acoustic data can be used to determine where vocalizing species are and the types of habitat they rely on, and to monitor changes in their populations. ARUs are cost-effective, non-invasive, and can be deployed in a wide variety of environments for months at a time to collect a large amount of acoustic data on multiple species simultaneously.

Remote Cameras

Remote cameras are used in a variety of habitats across Alberta and Canada to monitor wildlife populations.

Remote cameras are used to determine large-scale patterns in wildlife distribution and abundance. An animal’s heat and movement are detected by a camera resulting in an image that is stored and downloaded to a computer. Cameras are cost-effective, non-invasive, and can be deployed in a wide variety of environments for months at a time to collect a large amount of near-continuous data.
