[ARCHIVED] Volunteer: Seattle Urban Carnivore Project

Wildlife Camera, Trapping, Carnivore Project

Woodland Park Zoo (WPZ) and Seattle University scientists collaborated to launch the Seattle Urban Carnivore Project (SUCP) in 2019. 

This effort explores how carnivores — those in the scientific order Carnivora such as coyotes, black bears, raccoons, and bobcats — live and interact with people across the greater Seattle area. Researchers and volunteers with the Seattle Urban Carnivore Project deploy over 40 wildlife cameras across the greater Seattle area. Volunteers manage about two-thirds of the camera stations. 

They are currently recruiting returning and new volunteers to join the effort for the next season (the camera trapping season runs April 2022 - March 2023) at locations including parks in the Issaquah area. 

Those interested in taking part should complete the Volunteer Assignment Description form by Feb. 25 to understand the commitment, to sign-up as a volunteer and let the team know your site and training preferences. Training (required; via Zoom) will be held on Saturday, March 12 from 9:30-11:30 a.m. Those that complete the form will be sent training links.
