Camera traps for Ecologists

Choosing the right camera for ecological surveys can be vitally important. These cameras will ensure you don't miss a thing. 

However, certain cameras are better for certain species - so if you're after hedgehogs or badgers, some cameras will be better (and potentially more affordable) than others. 

Other considerations are if you will need no-glow or low-glow LEDs - this is more dependent on the kind of site you are surveying, and whether you expect any people close to the camera traps.
