Snapshots triggered by infrared sensors and motion detectors
Around our Mayang research station in the Batang Toru ecosystem, we use camera traps to monitor orangutan behaviour in the wild. The photos are an important source for estimating the size and density of orangutan populations. We also need to understand the biodiversity in their habitat in order to develop effective conservation strategies. That’s why it is always exciting when the pictures from the traps become available and can be analysed. Sometimes real surprises show up. Read for yourself!
