At this very moment in Serengeti National Park, 200 cameras are flashing throughout the night, in corners of the park where tourists never go.
These are camera traps -- remote, automatic cameras that take pictures of passing wildlife - and the Serengeti Lion Project is conducting the largest-ever camera trap survey to better understand the Serengeti ecosystem. The camera traps capture over 1,000,000 images of wildlife each year, capturing the grandeur of the wildebeest migration and rarely seen species from aardvarks to zebras.
Help to classify these images from the Snapshot Serengeti camera trap grid, which we use to monitor all of the mammal populations and see how they respond to environmental changes. Join this unprecedented initiative to bring cutting edge technology to the wilds of Serengeti, and you'll get first access to witness the Serengeti live on your computer.
