AFC launched its remote wildlife camera program in 2014 to document wildlife on AFC properties, research potential passageways for wildlife in our service area and to engage folks who are unable to visit natural open space. It began with 2 cameras on a property in Cottonwood Canyon, Pasadena. We documented wildlife passage over the period of one year and uploaded videos to our website for use with a wildlife corridor curriculum we are developing.
In 2015 AFC partnered with 2 very talented wildlife trackers/photographers, Denis Callet and Johanna Turner. They specialize in high resolution wildlife images, using DSLR cameras with multiple flash units to capture shots with incredible detail and composition. Thanks to them we know much more about our wild neighbors! Take a look at their images in our photo galleries below and on their websites: https://www.deniscallet.com/ and https://www.cougarmagic.com/.
