THE STORY:

UPDATE!:  In Decemeber 2015 we were able to purchase an additional camera thanks to the generous donations from the people listed and a one time only discount from Reconyx camera company.  We could still use a few more cameras so please consider donating.  Thank you Anderson Family, Bai Family, and Kate Munz

The use of game cameras as a tool in conservation has gained ground quickly in the last few years.  No longer must biologists try to trap animals in order to study them.  Westmoreland is 640 acres of pristine forest, wetlands, and fields.  That is a lot of property to monitor the flora and fauna.  Game cameras will allow staff, students, and interns to track the wildlife that uses Westmoreland as a home and as a greenway on their travels.  Join us in our campaign to get new game cameras for Westmoreland Sanctuary. 

Preliminary efforts have caught turkey, bobcat, coyotes, fox, skunk, hawks, and ravens on cameras that were borrowed.    Westmoreland is hoping to raise enough to obtain 2 new game cameras, as well as, the necessary accessories needed to run the cameras and keep them secure.  One of our main goals this summer would be to track a newly sighted 3 legged coyote (see picture) and monitor its movements.  We would also like to pilot a program to try and monitor a previously used eastern box turtle nesting area for signs of nesting in order to help locate nets and protect them from predators. 

As you can see from the picture, these are high quality pieces of equipment.  This work will not be possible without your help.  Photos obtained from the game cameras will be posted on our blog and website regularly to help donors follow the discoveries right along with us.  Won’t you consider donating today?  We would love to have you as part of our conservation family.
