To document the behaviour, distribution and, potentially, even the relative abundance of wild mammals, as well as the factors that affect those.

We collate data from motion sensing "camera traps", set up to photograph and monitor wild mammals in the UK as well as other countries within Europe. These cameras don't trap animals - but they take pictures of animals that pass in front of them. To gain good coverage, we need lots of people to contribute by deploying camera traps in their area. Since there may be many thousands of photos, we also need help to identify what's in them! By collating camera trap images and videos on a common platform, we can start to piece together the behaviour, distribution and, potentially, even the relative abundance of wild mammals, as well as the factors that affect those.
