Help identify African wildlife captured on remote camera from your browser

Posted in Science on 16th Dec, 2012 06:29 PM by AlexMuller

Over the past few years, scientists from the University of Minnesota have collected millions of photographs of wildlife from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, and now they're asking you to help identify the creatures caught on camera. To accomplish this, they created Snapshot Serengeti — a website launched this week that allows users to look at sequences of photos captured by hundreds of motion-activated camera traps in the park and identify their contents.


The team's ultimate goal is to understand how communities of large animals interact in the wild; they hope to discover how carnivores and herbivores coexist, and whether herbivores tend towards areas without predators, even if the food isn't as good. To get there they will study the distribution of more than 30 species in the region and examine how they interact with one another. It's not the first time a project like this has been done on the web — the project's sponsor has previously enlisted the public to help identify ocean life, cyclone data, and cancer samples — but Serengeti Snapshot has the added appeal of getting a close, candid look at big cats and other animals in their natural habitat.

I seldom drop cotmmnes, but i did a few searching and wound up here "Το γλυkό kοριτσάkι που έγινe "τέρaς" !!! (photos)". And I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright. Could it be only me or does it give the impression like some of the responses look like coming from brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on other online sites, I'd like to keep up with everything new you have to post.Could you list of all of all your shared pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?Feel free to visit my website: Reply
