North Carolina’s Candid Critter
Our mission is to collect a wide range of data relating to the biodiversity of our state through community involvement to enhance management and conservation practices.
NC Candid Critters is a three-year statewide camera trap survey run by citizen-scientists like you! We need camera traps run in all 100 counties of NC.
We’re calling all lovers of science and nature to participate in the camera trapping and identification of the wildlife in your area. With your help, we can learn more about what critters are in what areas to help enhance our state’s management and conservation practices.
