Camera traps in trees reveal a richness of species in Rwandan park

Good News Notes:

“Camera traps set high up in trees in Rwanda’s Nyungwe National Park captured 35 different mammal species over a 30-day period, including a rare Central African oyan (Poiana richardsonii), a small catlike mammal that has not previously been seen in the park.

Arboreal camera traps are a viable method for conducting mammal surveys, especially when partnered with ground cameras.

Understanding what animals are present in an area is a first step toward protecting them.”
