Whooping Crane Game-Camera Processing

It’s that time of year again – the ICF Texas Program is seeking volunteers to help process game camera photos for our study of freshwater wetland use by Whooping Cranes. Volunteers will be marking the presence of Whooping Cranes and other animals within photos. Each volunteer will be responsible for processing 5,000-6,000 photos by August but can absolutely do more if they wish. We should be ready to send out photos in the next month following a quick virtual training!

 This year we have about 150,000 photos (twice that of last year), which means we need all the help we can get from community scientists such as yourselves! We are going to keep it pretty simple this year and not send out flash drives, instead you will be given access to an online file. I’ve attached some game camera highlights to give you an idea of some fun species you might see.

If you’re interested in helping with this project, please fill out this quick form: Sign-up Sheet.

The virtual training day is TBD, but I will keep you posted after sign-ups start rolling in. The recording will be available for those that are unable to attend. Please let me know if you have any questions in the meantime! If you have questions, please contact: Paityn Bower, Outreach Biologist at ICF-Texas
