Adopt a Wildlife Camera!

As our popular wildlife camera program expands and grows, we’ve developed an exciting new opportunity for individuals and businesses to sponsor individual wildlife cameras. Each yearly sponsorship level comes with special perks, such as naming your camera and receiving regular photos of wildlife that the camera captures in both print and digital format. Monthly sponsorship levels equivalent to the yearly sponsorship level are also available and listed below.

Our wildlife cameras, and the wildlife photos they take, are essential to our work advocating for a protected and connected Sonoran Desert. Placed in targeted locations, these cameras collect critical data about wildlife presence and diversity in areas of the Sonoran Desert that are particularly threatened by new development, new roads, and other threats to habitat. We use these photos when we advocate for protected wildlife habitat to local governments, state and federal agencies, and the community at large. Our photos and data are also shared with other scientists and larger research projects. 

Your camera sponsorship will support the purchase of a new wildlife camera, along with associated equipment such as a secure storage box, memory cards, batteries, and a sturdy chain to secure the camera to a tree. Creating a sustainable funding stream for this project is essential to its continued success. If you would like to visit your camera in the field, we would be happy to arrange a personal field trip to the camera. 

Check out the different sponsorship levels below. If you are interested in becoming a camera sponsor, please contact our Program & Outreach Associate, Sarah Whelan, at 520-388-9925 or Sarah.Whelan@sonorandesert.org for more information.
