A few months ago, we installed a few hidden cameras in the Valle de los Cirios, Baja California, on areas protected by WILDCOAST. These “wild lands” have been certified by Mexico’s National Commission of Natural Protected Areas and are the largest private coastal reserve network in Mexico, reaching 32980.92 acres.
WILDCOAST started this biological inventory program to register and identify the types of wildlife that inhabit Valle de los Cirios. The hidden cameras were installed strategically to document the presence of wild fauna but also to not disturb or damage their habitat.
The motion activated cameras have caught some pretty interesting photos of coyotes (Canis latrans), desert cottontail (Sylvilagus audubonii), black-tailed jackrabbits (Lepus californicus), american badger (Taxidea taxus) and the always charismatic mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus).
