"Trap" camera for Kgalagadi

Unread postby Bush Baptist » Sun Nov 06, 2011 3:18 pm

While Barcud is in CT for our Nossob ecotrail trip, he has offered to show a presentation on his adventures in Antarctica.

It would happen on Monday 5 December, probably at my house, unless there is an overwhelming response.

It would be a fundraiser in aid of purchasing an extra camera for Kgalagadi Guru. Donations would be requested (approved by VHRs) and light refreshments would be provided.

If you would like to come, please reply here.

It you cannot come and you would like to donate anyway, I will be getting the details so please contact me and we can make a plan.
Whatever (according to BB): "You are correct but I don't want to admit it".

If anyone wants to know what these cameras do visit trailcampro.com to see how they work or technopro.co.za. They are very effective research tools saving the researchers hours of observation time by being able to monitor a number of sites remotely and collecting data on a continues basis.

Hi Vinkie
that would depend on what application you will be using the camera for there is a comparison of the cameras and their capabilities on the trailcampro website if it is for the Kgalagadi it is better to make a donation so they can get the cameras they know will fill their needs and also have a local backup and repair agent in case of something happening to the equiptment.
