ZSL’s InstantWild Public Camera Trapping Project in the Lolldaiga Hills Conservation Landscape

By Tom Butynski & Yvonne de Jong, Lolldaiga Hills Research Programme

The Zoological Society of London (ZSL) is working, through its ‘InstantWild’ project, and the public, to help identify species of mammals on the Lolldaiga Hills Conservation Landscape (LHCL). The partner in Kenya for this initiative is the Lolldaiga Hills Research Programme of the Sustainability Centre Eastern Africa. ZSL has provided camera traps for use in the LHCL. These camera traps have the capacity to ‘instantly’ transmit photographs to the InstantWild website and app so that the public can participate in the identification of the species in the photographs and, thereby, assist with the monitoring of species and with the development of the ‘Mammal Species List’ and ‘Bird Species List’ this landscape. This is the first time that the public has been engaged in this manner for a conservation site in Africa. Your participation in this project is most welcome…and greatly appreciated!
