Thank you for sharing Romaric! What is TBA? This field course seems very worth while and packed with practical knowledge that can be used to help make a difference. I started analyzing the camera trap data in my area last year and there is truly much to explore. Cheers!

Great, Just curious to learn what you have in terms of big cats, because I currently working with African lion (Panthera leo), leopard (Panthera pardus), Spotted hyena (Crocuta crocuta) and African golden cat (Caracal aurata). All of them are found in Cameroon.

Lovely,

that’s great, which big cats do you have over California (please, if you could provide me with common and species names)?

Thanks for sharing your light-bulb moments with us Romaric! I'm curious to know: what were your findings based on your own research project in the Kibale Forest National Park? Also, is there anything you wish you would have known before doing this TBA Field course?

I particularly worked with moths for my field project, setting up lamp traps with different colors of sheets and observing with colors are more attractive by moths. The conclusion was that, in the presence of lamp, moths prefer to land on blue sheets than others colors that was there as well, for instance white and red colors. It was a very lovely experimental design and study.

Before the TBA field courses, I wanted to get the hands on experience of real world wildlife conservation and other courses and practices related to wildlife conservation and management.

Hi Chrissy, TBA stands for Tropical Biology Association (https://tropical-biology.org/field-courses/), a world renowned UK-based organization working in tropical biology and conservation across the world. They usually run a competitive entrance call for application each year for very limited numbers of students and conservation scientists coming from all over the world to spend one month-long in the field of tropical conservation where you are able to learn from experts and fellows and gain practical knowledge and experience from the field. You can have a look at their website through the link provided above. 

Very good to learn than you’re analyzing your camera traps data. Did you try Wildlife Insights or Traptagger to proceed them?
