The peregrine and ferruginous hawk cameras provide a bird’s-eye view into the daily lives of each species as they fight for mates and territory, catch food, and raise their young. In 2019/20 ACA ran five peregrine cameras in locations throughout Edmonton—the Bell Tower, the University of Alberta, Genesee Power Plant, the Misericordia Hospital, and Nutrien—and we live-streamed the video to our website. The project also includes two ferruginous hawk nests monitored by trail cameras. The still images were reviewed and posted on our website. Also, an online species at risk contest quiz was promoted alongside the ferruginous hawk media. Both the peregrine and ferruginous hawk cameras draw attention to these species, other species at risk initiatives, and resources available from Alberta Environment and Parks. In 2019/20, views of the wildlife camera section of our website accounted for 29% of web traffic and the species at risk contest quiz reached 28,031 people and had 933 participants.
