We use #Tech4Wildlife for our project developing automated methods of individual ID for brown bears and other wildlife. We use a combination of #cameratrapping, visual observations, and #machinelearning with collaborative partnerships to make this happen. @WILDLABSNET 1/
Despite the pandemic, 2020 has been a big year for our project. Our wonderful partners @knightinlet @wildbearlodge @nanwakolas took a central role in getting #cameratraps up and running for the field season. #Tech4Wildlife @WILDLABSNET 2/ Partners recording camera trap locations on a hand-held deviAn installed camera trap fixed to a tree, next to a river.
We conducted some testing of our BearID software in real time using @Docker and the help of some #grizzlybears. We are using a population of bears that have been studied for >20yrs to assess the robustness of our #DeepLearning models. #Tech4Wildlife @WILDLABSNET 3/

Thankful to this unknown man for striking a pose and for not messing with my camera set up after he stumbled upon it. Also added, a bobcat using the log just a couple weeks prior. #cameratrap #trailcam #photobomb
Of course twitter brings their A game

Set up a #cameratrap today with my toddler while my wife had zoom meetings. Game trail runs off to the right behind the hackberrys. ImageImage
I like to aim my cameras low to get smaller species. Not interested in deer.

THREAD: Jaguars are the iconic #bigcat of the #Americas. In Mesoamerica, largest and most important habitat is the Selva Maya in #Guatemala, #Mexico, #Belize.

2 areas of Selva Maya are immediate concern, writes WCS’s John Polisar. bit.ly/2rI7j6T #InternationalJaguarDay Image
Jaguar's require space—ranges can stretch to over 200 miles. @TheWCS works across 250,000 sq. miles and 10 countries helping secure their future. #InternationalJaguarDay

Camera traps are used to record wildlife in it’s natural environment, they are designed to be unobtrusive and cause minimal disturbance but its quite clear they are noticed by animals 1/n #CameraTrapTuesday #cameratrap
Though many have a camouflage design even an infra-red and ‘low-glow’ flash is still very visible + human scent around a camera site can make animals wary. Animals may react strongly to a camera when it is first put in place, but become accustomed to its presence over time 2/n
Depending on what you want from a camera this curious behaviour may not be a problem as animals stay in shot longer, allowing clearer images and videos to be taken which are great for sharing and can help with individual ID! 3/n #fox #cameratraps

UP FIRST TONIGHT: everyone's favorite river horse, the 1-seeded PYGMY HIPPO Hexaprotodon (formally Choeropsis) liberiensis, vs. the scrappy 4-seeded brush wolf, COYOTE Canis latrans! #2018MMM
Many minds came together to bring you tonight's first battle, so a quick hat-tip to @AnneWHilborn, @PKurnath, @TCastanea, & @tinkeringprim8. Seriously, the #teamwork has been amazing #Monstars #2018MMM
To reach the #FinalRoar, Hippo crushed star-nosed mole, intimidated both maned rat & Tasmanian devil, & STOMPED the cheetah out of competition #hangryhippo #2018MMM
