First Global Camera Trap Mammal Study

I thought this was a very interesting study. Global researchers are getting a different perspective of wildlife from preserves in Suriname, Costa Rica, Indonesia, Tanzania, Brazil, Uganda and Laos, through hidden cameras.

With over 400 camouflage automatic cameras snapping candid images Conservation International has captured some really beautiful images.

The first of 52,000 photos have just been released.
