An online talk from Dr Pen-Yuan Hsing, University of Bath, previously Durham University


Event outline

MammalWeb works with citizen scientists to deploy motion-sensing “camera traps” to capture wildlife images. The photos produced make up a valuable dataset from which experts can infer a better understanding of the diversity and distribution of wildlife.

Started in 2014 at Durham University with citizen scientists across North-East England, MammalWeb is now an international network with contributions from individuals and organisations across Europe. Collectively, this effort has conducted more than 180 years worth of observations yielding 1.5+ million images. Anyone can submit camera trap images or aid in their classification from the MammalWeb website.

In this event, Dr Pen-Yuan Hsing, co-founder of MammalWeb, will speak to the development of MammalWeb, its scientific implications, and how it facilitates civic engagement by participants. There will be ample time following the talk for questions from the audience.
