We are super excited to have gotten our fourth ferret photo up at Soapstone this past week! Nice to see that nearly a year after their introduction to Soapstone Natural Area these little guys are alive and well.

On September 3rd, 2014 the endangered black-footed ferret was reintroduced to Soapstone Natural Area just north of Fort Collins. Here at CSU, The Wildlife Society’s Camera Project (TWSCP) has been monitoring the reintroduction of these ferrets with the remote triggered wildlife cameras. On September 10thcameras captured the first photo of a black-footed ferret near the entrance of a burrow on the Roman House prairie dog colony.
Ferrets were released on to two prairie dog colonies at Soapstone Natural Area and are expected to expand onto other colonies in years to come. TWSCP is excited to be a part of monitoring the success and outcomes of the black-footed ferret reintroduction.
Congratulations to the Camera Project Crew! We received 2nd Place in the Service and Learning category in the Celebration of Undergraduate Research and Creativity at CSU! Thank you to all who put the poster together and helped make this possible.
