Your Camera Trap Questions Answered

What kind of animals will I see on the footage?

Khamab Kalahari Reserve never disappoints! Expect to see iconic predators like lions, leopards, cheetahs, and African wild dogs. But don’t forget the amazing supporting cast: zebras, giraffes, antelopes, hyenas, nocturnal creatures like porcupines and bat-eared foxes, even elusive aardvarks – the possibilities are endless.

How does camera trap data help Kalahari conservation?

Camera traps are like puzzle pieces for ecological management. They help us:

  • Count Animals: Identify trends for each species living in the reserve, to ascertain whether those populations are stable, growing, or in trouble.
  • Track Movements: See where animals travel, revealing important areas to manage.

Can I participate in camera trap research even if I’m not an experienced scientist?

Absolutely! Citizen scientists are the backbone of our camera trap project. We’ll provide the training and tools. You bring your passion and adventurous spirit. Your enthusiasm and help with data collection are indispensable for our conservation success.
