Cleveland Metroparks has partnered with researchers at Michigan State University to launch a long-term urban wildlife project throughout the Metroparks system. Collaboratively, we have deployed more than 100 camera traps that non-invasively sample wildlife populations by taking pictures of animals as they trigger the cameras by their motion and body heat. With this data, we seek to understand the distribution and abundance of wildlife throughout the park system. Our findings will help us understand interactions among the abundant animal life within the reservations to facilitate ongoing management and conservation efforts focused on these species. The camera traps are intended to capture photographs of animal wildlife in open fields on land accessible to all members of the public.
