Camera trap workshop

This is an educational workshop aimed to educate local landholders on how to best utilise camera trap technology to monitor fauna on their properties.

About this event

Dr Paul Meek from the NSW DPI – Vertebrate Pest Research Unit will be running a short presentation on how camera traps work, how to use them properly and identifying the pitfalls of these devices. Paul has been using camera traps since 2009 and much of his research over the last 10 years has been refining these tools. Paul will give a spoken presentation on camera trapping describing how camera traps work, their failings, and their advantages and will give guidance on how to use them properly to suit your needs.

Weather permitting we will head outside for an opportunity to set up some cameras and seek some friendly critique.

Peter Goonan & Anthony Marchment (Mid Coast Council) will also join us and present a synopsis of how they are using Camera Traps to monitor native and feral fauna on conservation projects; what has worked and what has not.
