Wildlife Cameras

The peregrine falcon 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 2021/22, ACA ran three peregrine falcon cameras in locations throughout Edmonton—Bell Tower, Genesee Power Plant, and Nutrien—and livestreamed the video on our website. The project also includes three ferruginous hawk nests monitored by trail cameras. The still images were reviewed and posted on our website. Also, three online species at risk contest quizzes were promoted alongside the ferruginous hawk media. Both the peregrine falcon and ferruginous hawk cameras highlight these species at risk, other species at risk initiatives, and resources available from Alberta Environment and Parks. In 2021/22, views of the wildlife camera section of our website accounted for 24% of website traffic, and the species at risk contest quizzes reached 45,326 people and had 974 participants.
