Images enable conservation

Good conservation work needs both knowledge and inspiration.
Both of which we get by looking closely at the wonders of our one and only planet.

Conservation

Camera traps

Camera traps, hidden in some of the world's most remote and inaccessible locations, are activated by an infrared sensor when body heat or movement from an animal is detected. But how exactly do we use them for conservation?

Based on the photos and video taken, we are able to uncover invaluable information about rare species and their habitat, which we can use to ensure that they are effectively protected.

On the Indonesian island of Sumatra, for example, camera traps are used to help create a map of tiger territory. Thus providing crucial information for land-use decisions, such as what forests most need to be protected from logging.

Cameras tend to capture the unexpected! Day and night they provide a glimpse into a previously unseen world of some of the most endangered species on Earth.

Our world is simply AMAZING
