Research ManagerOrganisations: Snapshot Serengeti
Snapshot Serengeti is a biological monitoring and citizen science initiative involving 200+ camera traps that have operated continuously in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania, for over eight years. These camera traps provide accurate estimates of populations sizes across a wide range of resident and migratory species, comprehensively measure the local-scale patterns of the annual migration, and provide unique insights into Serengeti predator-prey dynamics.

Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique was once among the most diverse places on Earth, but decades of war decimated the park’s large animal populations. In 2016, researchers established a ~50 camera trap monitoring survey in the park following the methodology of the Snapshot Serengeti project. These cameras are capturing how the wildlife community changes in response to the introduction of historic predator species.

In 2017, we deployed over 100 camera traps across the long-term ecological research station, Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve (CCESR). CCESR is a world-famous biological field station lying within the meeting point of the three largest biomes of North America - tall grass prairie, eastern deciduous forest and boreal coniferous forest - and is consequentially filled with a diverse array of floristic and faunal diversity. While the plant and soil communities of CCESR have been rigorously studied for decades, this is the first project to rigorously study the diverse animal community (including recolonizing wolves).
