With four barbed wire hair snag sites set up on the Cadomin Limstone quarry, we had another successful day collecting hair samples last week. The motion-sensor trail cameras have provided a treasure trove of photos, capturing images of bears investigating the scent lure we pour on elevated piles of branches and moss at each site. See the photos on the left of this page for some of the highlights! In addition to hair samples, quarry staff have been collecting any grizzly bear scat samples they encounter during their daily operations across the property; another source of DNA to identify individual bears present on the landscape. Given the activity rates we have detected at the hair snag sites this far, we are confident that grizzly bears using the quarry area are leaving their mark behind and being accounted for in our study!
