Turning A Blind Eye?
Camera traps are one of the most popular wildlife monitoring and research tools. They record spectacular wildlife images, such as this leopard, though not always. Many users are familiar with finding animal tracks in front of their cameras, but there are no matching images. Since 2016, ORC has been testing the performance of different wildlife cameras and we now expanded these experiments to include the newest models. In the last few weeks, we conducted over 3,000 test walks in front of 16 cameras to find out more about the factors that influence their performance.
