England|Ecology continues to explore the latest scientific techniques in wildlife documentation and monitoring that do not require the full time presence of a biologist. Using these techniques, you can find out more about the wildlife of a project site or study area using less resources. Camera traps are an effective tool for understanding wildlife present in an area, often detecting species that are difficult to observe directly during in-person surveys and detecting spatial use patterns over time. England|Ecology has deployed a large number of cameras during long-term studies. Autonomous recording units (ARUs) are a newer technology for wildlife studies and are most effective in assessing the avifauna and bats in an area, often documenting more species than an in-person survey and in a cost-effective manner.
