Wildlife caught on camera

Everyone knows about the abundance of wildlife in our project area, but it is not always so easy to really see the elephants, chimpanzees or bushbucks. Although species like baboons, black and white colobus or red tailed monkeys are relatively common to spot, many other species are shy or afraid of people and prefer to move at night or hide whenever they hear people. We wanted to get a better impression about the animals in the project area, and in February we started experimenting with wildlife cameras in some spots. It is surprising to see how many different species visit the same place. Pictures were taken of elephants, bushbuck, several primate species, giant forest hogs and other species. Baboons and chimps sometimes looked very curious into the camera. Check out a selection of the pictures for yourself:
