Motion-activated cameras capture some of the many wildlife species that benefit from LPCI’s habitat conservation work.

When LPCI researchers placed motion-activated cameras at livestock water tanks, they captured images of just a few of the many species that inhabit the prairie grasslands of the Southern Great Plains. Though lesser prairie-chickens don’t need surface water (they get all the water they need from the food they eat), they’ll make use of it when it’s available.
