Some weeks back, UNC-TV took part in a citizen science program called “Candid Critters“ by installing a camera trap behind our facilities. The program, which is sponsored by the North Carolina Museum of Natural History, is designed to take photos of wildlife in the Tar Heel State.
Here are a few shots of some of the intriguing fauna found in UNC-TV’s backyard…
The black and white photos were taken at night with an infrared flash so as not to blind the animals. Color photos are taken during the day.
For more information on the program, watch UNC-TV’s Frank Graff talk to Dr. Roland Kays of the North Carolina Museum of Natural History.
