Catalina Foxes at Catalina Island Camp
Catalina Foxes at Catalina Island Camp!
Anyone who has visited Catalina Island in the past few years, knows that the number of Catalina foxes have grown substantially. You can tell just by seeing the scat around camp every morning. In fact, the fox population is now at 2,300!
Many of us will even see a fox exploring around camp after dark. The resurgence of the Catalina Island Fox, after becoming nearly extinct a decade ago, is a welcome sight to Catalina Island Camp staff and our campers!
The Catalina fox is an important part of the local ecosystem. We welcome the opportunity to teach our campers about the diverse wildlife of Catalina Island. The fox is a subspecies found only on our 76-square-mile island, and is a favorite among locals and visitors alike. We are excited for our campers to see these foxes in action this summer!
