How do CritterCams work?



  1. 0 Votes

    Crittercams are cameras worn by wild animals, thus allowing scientists to study animals in their natural habitat.  They provide great insight into the life and habits of animals for scientists.  They are attached to the animals in different ways, depending on the animal.  For marine animals, a special suction cup system was devised.  Crittercam’s are attached to seals and turtles with a small adhesive patch, and penguins have specially designed harnesses.  For most land mammals scientists attach the camera on a collar.  Scientists then release the animal back into the wild for observation.  If, for some reason, the camera needs to be discarded, scientists can do so remotely and then go to retrieve the camera.
