  1. This is an amazing project, important to make public - thus archiving and hopefully raising awareness for - the preservation of species in their indigenous and relatively undisturbed? environment. HI am curious: how aware of you and the traps are they? how much interaction do they have with humans? Thanks.

  2. As you can see some animals look at the cameras and some just walk by. there's not much interaction with human, because not many people live in the area. I have never seen any of the animals seen in the videos, they are very shy.

  4. Schitterend om te zien dit. Ik heb 3 maanden in een kamp in Leuser gezeten voor onderzoek naar Orangs, vanuit de Universiteit Utrecht. Ik heb ook zelf een encounter gehad met een tijger, maar geen zwijnen, beren, olifanten of andere katachtigen gezien. Hoeveel camera's worden er in bomen gehangen? Een collega met cameratraps in orang-oetan nests had namelijk erg veel andere dieren op de camera.

  6. Really a great action! Could you also take videos of the poachers for prosecution? It seems to be that poaching is one of the main threads to this fantastic forest
