Caught On Camera

Blog Post - Caught On Camera

Caught on Camera is an innovative NatureWatch project that involves working with local community groups, land holders and contracted professional ecologists to carry out community based, long term monitoring of wildlife using motion-sensing cameras. The project involves bringing these groups together to develop the project objectives and methods and train volunteers in the use of remote sensing cameras...

This FNPW grant was primarily applied to two Caught on Camera locations in Victoria - Bunyip State Park and Wombat State Forest.

During the grant period approximately 12,000 high quality fauna records per year were collected across the two project locations. This included approximately 150 records of feral species, which were reported to local land managers immediately after they were recorded.


Each year, two 3 month-long wildlife monitoring seasons were held - monitoring Wombat State Forest in Autumn and Bunyip State Park in Spring. The project was conducted in partnership with three community groups; the Friends of Bunyip State Park, Friends of Kurth Kiln and Wombat Forestcare, with the support of local land managers, Parks Victoria, as well as the Victorian Department of Environment Land Water and Planning.
