Camera traps

In this gallery you will find an overview of the species caught by camera traps during ecological monitoring in Mlele BKZ as well as in adjacent reserves (Rukwa Game Reserve, Rungwa River Forest Reserves, Inyonga Forest Reserve and Ugalla River Forest Reserve) during Bachelor and Master projects. Ecological monitoring of mammals began in 2008 and continues every year thanks to the work of VGS and technical support from Hepia. After several method tests, monitoring now combines camera trap methods with direct opportunistic observations. Camera traps are particularly suitable for monitoring medium and large mammals in wooded areas with many nocturnal and elusive species. This method has made it possible to detect 47 mammal species out of the 56 species recorded at Mlele BKZ. You will find more information in the various  research works.
