Wildlife trail cameras have become increasingly popular for ecological monitoring and research purposes and some camera trap models are better for this than others.

Below we’ve compiled our top choice camera traps for research; focusing on key features and specs like accuracy and reliability.

We’re also aware many research projects have strict budgets so we’ve included some trail cameras here for a lower cost but still being a worthwhile investment.

We provide camera traps to large institutions and organisations such as ZSL, WWF, Fauna & Flora International, many Universities, RSPB, Wildlife Trusts etc. for uses as varied as tiger research, fox occupancy studies and rat populations on tropical islands.  We know all research projects are unique and your camera choice will depend on what your research is focused on but regardless of your research topic we’re confident one of the selections below will be the perfect fit for you.

If you would still like to discuss your planned research with us so we can recommend the best options, just get in touch. We are also experts on shipping trail cameras internationally.
