Mammal Web is an exciting citizen science project, involving remote-capture trail cameras, to monitor our mammal population.
The project is a collaboration between Durham Wildlife Trust and a team of ecologists in the School of Biological Sciences at Durham University.
People can get involved in the project by becoming a ‘spotter’ or a ‘trapper’. ‘Trappers’ upload images from their remote-capture trail cameras to the Mammal Web website and ‘spotters’ help to classify them.
The information gathered helps to build a picture of the region’s mammal population as well as information on their activity.
