Camera Trap sessions and use

Setting camera traps with interns/participants. This exercise helps wildlife enthusiasts help the need for long term research and highlights the use of such equipment in small mammal studies too.
 Setting of a camera trap is as essential as knowing how it functions. It is also an important tool to keep a track on poachers and illegal timber/firewood collectors. Camera traps are thus like eyes in a forest and help record data in areas where there is a shortage of field staff too.
Once set, the camera trap triggers on a heat sensor mechanism in this case and helps document the mammal that has caused it to trigger.
