Camera trapping has revolutionized data gathering in conservation. A camera trap can be set up in selected areas to silently record passing animals. This has led to the discovery of many new additions to the various populations, informed rangers of wounded or snared animals that need help, recorded new species or species previously thought to be extirpated, catch poachers. Information can be recorded day or night and often in hard to access places with minimal disturbance. When enough camera traps are obtained, surveys, game counts and population estimates can be calculated as well as preferred prey and diet through presence and absence of predators. We are still finding new methods and means for camera trapping as they remain an exciting addition to scientific research projects.
