From November 2020 to Spring 2021 three trail cameras in the Blue Mountain area collected photos of wildlife. This is a project through the Nova Action Youth Cohort.
Blue Mountain Birch Cove Lakes is a 1767 hectare wilderness area 20 minutes from the Halifax peninsula that is frequented by hikers and dog walkers. Through the use of trail cameras this project hopes to highlight and investigate the many varied animals that call this area home despite the frequent human activity.
Many smaller species such as squirrels and song birds are too small and move too quickly to be detected by the cameras, but can often be spotted by the eye when walking in Blue Mountain.
Other signs of wildlife seen while in the area were also recorded through photos, these include tracks, evidence of feeding, and scat, a lot of it.
