Camera-trapping best-practices

Hi everyone, 

As part of a WWF-UK conservation tech initiative, I'm putting together camera-trapping best-practice guidelines, aimed at field practitioners with limited previous experience of the technology. We're keen to make recommendations on the best camera models to use, given the objectives and operating environment (budget, climate etc.), but to do this we need to know what models have and have not worked! This is where you guys in the Sensors group, many of which no doubt use cameras (or know others who do!), come in...

If you have a spare 10 mins at some point over the next few weeks, it would be great if you could point your browser to:

We're also collecting your views on the major current constraints towards more effective camera-trapping. I'll be in touch further with the group to field ideas we've been having in this respect - would be great to get some conversations going on this. 

Look forward to hearing your experiences and opinions, and I will of course share the results here once they're in...

Much appreciated,
