You can help us see and identify wildlife in Calgary in a couple of ways:

Calgary captured

Calgary Captured helps us identify and sort wildlife caught on camera. Through your participation, tens of thousands of images can be organized in a fraction of the time. This is a chance for you to take a peek into Calgary's local parks when people aren't around and see what the critters get up to.

Report sightings through 3-1-1

Remote wildlife cameras

A key part of coexisting with wildlife is to understand how they make use of urban environments. Much of what we know comes from Calgarians reporting sightings through 311. To build upon that, in late spring 2017, The City of Calgary started monitoring select parks with remote cameras to get more detail about wildlife movement and habitat use. Remote wildlife cameras have been installed in 13 city parks and Fish Creek Provincial Park, including:

  • Paskapoo Slopes
  • Tom Campbell's Hill
  • Ralph Klein Park
  • Inglewood Bird Sanctuary
  • Edworthy Park/Lawrey Gardens
  • Bowmont Park
  • Griffith Woods
  • Nosehilll Park
  • Edgemont Ravines
  • Confluence Park
  • North/South Glenmore Park/Weaselhead
  • Haskayne
  • Hidden Valley
