Conserve Big Carnivores in Ruaha

Ruaha Carnivore Project (RCP), part of Oxford University's Wildlife Conservation Research Unit, works with local partners to come up with effective conservation strategies for the wider Ruaha eco-system.

Ruaha is the largest park in Tanzania and is home to globally significant populations of large carnivores.  RCP is driving a number of projects in the area, among which is studying the population of carnivores in order to better inform conservation strategy.  Remotely triggered camera traps are an excellent way of monitoring wildlife populations, especially in human-dominated areas where wild animals are particularly secretive.

Nomad support helps provide effective carnivore monitoring across this vast landscape ideally requires hundreds of camera traps deployed in the field, as well as batteries and solar panels for charging them. This is a high priority so that RCP can collect scientifically valid data to share with the authorities for future conservation planning.
