While other camera traps used by our friends in WWF-Malaysia have flash that captures award-winning photos of wildlife and allow you to identify animal individuals to get density estimates, covert cameras such as ours may decrease the likelihood of your camera being destroyed by irritable elephants or encroachers who want souvenirs – it all depends on the objective of your study. In this project, we are mainly interested to know the species present in the forests and the species utilising viaducts over fixed time periods.
Fortunately, these camera traps are password-protected and have built-in cameras that would be of no use to a thief. Our cameras have been out for 3 months in the forests and we are happy to report the cameras retrieved so far were healthy and dry. Here are photos of several interesting species recorded from the forests and beneath the viaducts. Enjoy!
Very awesome wildlife photos ! I form PlanMalaysia ( Jabatan Perancangan Bandar dan Desa ) under Kementerian Kesejahteraan Bandar dan , Perumahan dan Kerajaan Tempatan (KPKT). Right now, we had done Central Forest Spine (CFS) project in order to preserve our forest from fragmentation in regional view . The report is on final stage , hope we can take some of your picture as our research . Hopefully can collaborate with rimbaresearch in the future. By the way , its very good to know that they are using the viaducts! We just can see elephant poop on the other viaduct .lol
