The camera trap is a digital camera connected to an infrared sensor which can “see” warm objects that are moving, like animals. When an animal moves past the sensor it causes the camera to fire, recording an image or video to the SD card for later retrieval.
The Baobab Conservation Team manages the cameras we sponsor. The cameras are checked on a weekly basis to ensure they are working properly. At this time batteries are changed and data cards are swapped. Data from the SD cards is downloaded and cataloged.
