About the event

This two-day workshop is for university students intending to carryout biological surveys using camera trapping techniques as part of a field research project.

This workshop will cover key aspects of planning, implementing and analysing camera trap surveys in the field. It will examine the various survey techniques for which remote cameras provide a powerful survey tool and discuss the different environments camera traps can be used in, from tree tops to ocean floors. Time will be spent processing and analysing camera trap photos using ZSL’s Camera Trapping Analysis Tool (CTAT) and discussing other statistical approaches.
