Photos Captured of Soapstone Ferrets
Photos of reintroduced black footed ferrets at Soapstone Prairie Natural Area have been captured for the first time. This marks a huge success for the camera monitoring program as it was unknown whether placement of camera traps would yield any results. Future monitoring of the ferrets is planned, and plans for more cameras as well as a possible new reintroduction site are currently underway.
