Automated species detection from camera traps

Hello. I'm looking into the possibility to automatically identify species from camera traps.

This is for work based in the Middle East, mainly the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.

I'm new here and was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction to get started?

I have familiarity with Python.


maybe I can help. Can you give me some more details about the project? It would be great if you have sample footage to train and validate

Wow thats really amazing work but not quite what I'm after.

What I want to be able to do is take hundreds of individual images from camera traps. Loop through all the images and identify the species in each image.

I see. Im interested and would like to help. I will need the images to train the network. As many as possible. 
if you dont have them yet, try to find similar images preferably of the same species. I will use them to test the performance of the detection.
