As many of you already know our Elephant Hills’ Camera Trap Project started in 2011 and we love to keep you updated for the newest developments and findings. Just as much do we enjoy working with the Wildlife officers at the National park headquarters, hence we put a lot of effort in our report, which we gave to them this month.

We collect our camera footage every other month, take notes on the treks and try to evaluate migration patterns, reproduction probability and overall gain a better insight into the diverse fauna Khao Sok has to offer.

One year of research. One year of teamwork. One year of helping to conserve our beautiful nature in Khao Sok!

For those who don’t know that much about our project yet:

At Elephant Hills we are very enthusiastic about nature, always keen to find out more about what animals are living in our beloved Khao Sok National park. So we installed some motion-triggered cameras deep in the heart of the jungle, where all the animals are.
