What are life chambers?
The OSMP details that, every day, dozens of animal species move stealthily through Boulderlooking for food and resting places. Most of the time, no one, not even Department staff, sees them.
But sometimes, OSMP staff are lucky enough to get a close look at local wildlife thanks to a system of motion detection cameras that passively capture snapshots and videos of the animals in its natural habitat. Currently, OSMP has 9 cameras spread across a 46,000 acre land.
“OSMP’s wildlife cameras come to life when an animal stands in front of them. When that happens, the cameras take a still picture. Then they have the ability to capture video for 10 to 30 seconds. At night, they use infrared light to create photographs that minimize disturbance to nocturnal wildlife.”
