Jewels of the Forest - camera trap footage from Leuser rainforest, Sumatra

Category : cameratraps

Setting up camera traps are easy, but then you need to do maintenance, recovery, review thousands of images to eliminate false positives, and in this case, annotate, compile and upload to YouTube!

Well, "Eye on Leuser" has done just that and this clip below from their July 2011 footage presents highlights from camera traps placed in the Leuser ecosystem in Northern Sumatra, Indonesia.

Sit back and feast your eyes to Barking Deer, Eurasian Wild Pig, Golden Cat, Pig-tailed Macaques, Moon Rat, Long-tailed Giant Rat, Sambar Deer, Porcupine, Banded Civet, Mouse Deer, Argus Pheasant, Marbled Cat - the heart of forest researchers watching this will be pounding, and I felt almost breathless!

The Leuser ecosystem in Aceh and North Sumatra is host to orang utans, tigers, elephants, rhino and other endangered species. More than 170 mammals, 320 birds and 190 reptiles and amphibians have been recorded from the area.

See more on their Youtube channel, "Eyes on Leuser".

Thanks to @WiredScience for the tip.
