Assess biodiversity and community composition

Camera traps are an integral tool used by BI scientists to track and record where mammal species currently occur and which species occur together. Researchers will use this information to serve as a benchmark for future conservation and management action on mainland Equatorial Guinea.

By establishing a benchmark and, BI can track changes in mammal ranges and composition of communities to help inform practical and effective management action during a period of rapid deforestation.
