Getting a glimpse into the beauty of wildlife in their natural habitats is something that many Wildlands Network staff have the chance to do every day. Carly Creef-Alexander, our Coastal Plain Conservationist based in Manns Harbor, North Carolina, works directly with local landowners to garner support and tolerance for red wolves, one of most critically endangered mammals in the world. The camera traps Carly places on the property of these landowners (with their permission, of course!) help reveal the amazing diversity of wildlife that share the land—including white-tailed deer, black bear, gray foxes, and red wolves. Below are some of Carly’s favorite photos from this project, illustrating how her efforts to build appreciation for surrounding nature are helping sustain the wild, one camera trap photo at a time.
