Trail cameras gather the necessary information to ensure that our educational, outreach and reference materials are based on science and facts. Setting up an extensive trail camera network will track cougar movements to identify where cougars are most prevalent and which cougar behaviours are essential to educate the public on. By sponsoring a trail camera, you are enabling research that provides insight into wildlife populations and behaviours.

Have you seen a cougar in your community or on a trail? We are tracking cougar sightings and will make them available on a quarterly basis so that you know when you are in cougar territory. The goal is to keep our communities informed and trail users safer.
An interactive sighting map will be displayed here after an initial dataset is acquired.
Cougars are a misunderstood species. Sharing real-life stories, experiences and video footage about cougars is essential to dispelling myths and misconceptions. We welcome experiences, images, and video footage (trail camera videos or otherwise) of cougars to share in our educational programs and our outreach and communication efforts. Credit will also be given to the photographer, videographer, and storyteller unless you designate otherwise.
To submit a story, photo, or video, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If your file is larger than what your email host will allow, try a cloud service like WeTransfer or Google Drive.
This is the end of our Cougar series in the Knowledge Base. We hope you feel more informed, and better prepared if you were to encounter a cougar.
