Update: Identifying Species

All 25 cameras purchased with funds provided by the Global Wildlife Conservation’s Primate Action Fund and the Margot Marsh Biodiversity Foundation are up and capturing images in Outamba Kilimi National Park!

We are using these cameras not only to identify primate biodiversity in the area, but also identify the predator species and prey diversity. We will be moving the cameras throughout OKNP over the next year to get a good idea of what animals live in the many habitats found in the park. OKNP is made up of savanna woodland, canopy forest, swamps, mountains and large rivers which makes it home to a high level of biodiversity.

Camera trap data analysis is a long and arduous process, especially with 25 cameras collecting sometimes over 600 images/videos per month. But while we sift through the data we wanted to share some of our first images with you!
