The Best Camera Traps for Ecologists & Researchers
Becoming increasingly more popular for ecological monitoring and research purposes, some camera trap models are better for this than others. If you're looking to use a camera trap for research purposes, it can be very important to make the right choice as accuracy and reliability are key requirements.
We're very aware that researchers are also often on a tight budget, so you can find some trail cameras here for a low cost but still being a worthwhile investment.
Of course, a lot depends on what your research is based on; i.e. small mammals, identification of individual animals, occupancy studies - but the below should help you choose.
We have been providing camera traps to large institutions and organisations for years; including Oxford University, ZSL, WWF, Fauna & Flora International, RSPB, Wildlife Trusts and many many more for uses as varied as tiger research, fox occupancy studies and rat populations on tropical islands.
If you would like to discuss your planned research with us so we can recommend the best options, please just get in touch.
