Learn More About Camera Traps
Camera traps are now a vital tool for conservation in many parts of the world. Increasingly, they are being used by animal-lovers on their local patches. They give a glimpse into the unseen world of wildlife, as an unobtrusive, 24/7 observer.
Their increasing popularity results in a whole host of different makes and models, so choosing one can be tricky. We're here to help you, and we provide essential info to make it easier for you. You can also try our camera trap chooser to help you find the right model.
We're experts in trail cameras and camera trapping. Our team run camera trap projects throughout the UK and Europe, and provide training for leading environmental organisations and ecologists. We have many years of hands-on experience using camera traps too!
As a social enterprise, we're also completely non-profit. Sales through the NatureSpy Shop go towards running NatureSpy and the wildlife projects. This helps us achieve our constitutional aims while avoiding shareholder pockets.
How do we use them?
We use camera traps for wildlife monitoring, research and for community engagement. We look for elusive pine marten in the North York Moors' forests, find what lives in local communities, look for the animals that call wild places home, and even support projects looking for lynx, wolves and bears in Europe.
You can see what we do and what we've captured on our various project pages.
