One of the data collection methods we will be employing is camera trapping. This means wildlife cameras will be placed around the District to capture high quality photos of cats outside, and to obtain the best possible estimate of the size of the outdoor cat population in Washington, DC. For more information about the project and its collaborators, visit www.dccatcount.org.
For the purposes of this project, camera trapping will occur during the warmer months and in areas all across Washington, D.C. Cameras will be in any particular location for 2 - 4 weeks and will capture photos of cats and other wildlife. Humane Rescue Alliance staff will be responsible for installation and break down of all cameras.
If you are interested in participating in this project by having a camera set up on your property in the future, please complete the form below and someone will be in touch with you with more information.
