Subject: NEW COURSE: Camera Trapping Study Design and Data Analysis for Occupancy and Density Estimation

This course provides a theoretical and analytical background in the use of camera traps to address ecological and conservation-oriented questions including the estimation of animal abundance, density and occupancy, and the monitoring of population trends over time. In addition to 3-day modules on both occupancy modeling and density estimation using spatially-explicit approaches, the course includes a module on data management, and time for focused work with instructors on participants' own datasets. Applications for this offering of the course will only be open to those working in Latin America on medium- or large-sized mammal species. However, email us if you are interested in the course but are working outside of this region as we hope to offer the course to a wider audience in the future.

Dates: June 20-29, 2016 (apply now as only a few spaces remain!)

Location: Front Royal, Virginia, USA

Go to the course webpage for more detail and application instructions, or email us at with questions.
