Categories: ,



Explore 201,000 camera trap images collected at research sites around the world.

The site [...] is designed to be a clearinghouse for motion-triggered "camera traps" used in research across the world to identify, count and observe some of the world's most elusive animals. It is another example of "this is what the web was made for," as pictures that are usually only seen by fortunate scientists are now available for anyone with access to the internet to see.

The image quality does vary significantly: some pictures are very dark, others crystal-clear. The site explains this is because the researchers are using different cameras for different reasons.
