NWA is using large numbers of camera traps placed in strategic positions determined by careful study of the habitat areas.
Collected photographs will be evaluated using NWA’s Quick ID method.
The result is a comprehensive catalogue of the elephants present in a certain habitat as well as seasonal patterns and other data.
Capture/recapture is usually conducted in collaboration with authorities and other NGOs like Freeland foundation.
NWA’s roles are:
- Providing camera traps
- Quick ID evaluation and training
Efficient elephants surveillance in conflict areas
