    About This Project

    Lake Manyara National Park, located in northern Tanzania, harbors several mammal species of conservation concern (lion, elephant, leopard, and several small carnivores), yet dense vegetation and their elusive and nocturnal behavior impede effective monitoring. In order to improve the ecological knowledge and to effectively monitor these species, this study will employ camera traps to assess their activity patterns, spatio-temporal distribution and baseline population size estimates.
