Camera traps are devices that use motion sensors to capture wild animals and plants. Animals are being rescued from bush meat hunters and rare animals are found in the process.
In Togo, a West African country, researchers were able to see Walter’s duiker (African duiker) image for the first time in the wild. Gizmodo.
Rare species of aardvarks and mongooses roaming the wild in Togo using camera traps were also found.
Neil D’Cruze, a wildlife biologist at the University of Oxford, told Gizmodo: “In the field of biodiversity surveys, camera traps are the game changer.” “It took me a few minutes. Weeks of time for rough processing in a tropical forest that does not seem to have any large mammal species. However, when you turn on your laptop and insert the memory card from the camera trap that sits patiently there throughout the trip, and see The species that has always existed throughout the process is like glancing at a parallel world.”

For hunters who specialize in the collection of jungle prey for wild animals and plants in rural communities, biologists no longer need their services are considered illegal and unsustainable overhunting. Some people who eat forest game kill rare animals and sell rare animal carcasses to the market.
Walter’s duiker was discovered in 2010, when a bushmeat specimen was compared with other known duiker specimens. But the latest images of Walter’s canoe are the first scientists ever. Because the International Union for Conservation of Nature classifies rare species as “insufficient data”, rare species are not included in the list of endangered species.
The Wildlife Conservation Research Group (also known as WildCRU) of the Department of Zoology at Oxford University in the United Kingdom is working hard to make a difference.
Oxford University zoologist David Macdonald (David Macdonald) said: “In the past 200 years, this graceful antelope has shown great talent in avoiding scientists, but it turns out that they are avoiding nets, traps and Hunting dogs are not so sad.” “Drawing their whereabouts in the wild meat market is roughly similar to drawing their distribution on a venison board, thus mapping the habits of British deer.”
