Camera Trap Footage
Ethiopian or Desert Hedgehog
Camera trap footage captured by our terrestrial ecologists during fieldwork in Saudi Arabia. The Desert Hedgehog's distinguishing feature is its spiny coat. The short and sharp spines with white tips on their back, give them an overall greyish presentation.
Arabian Sand Gazelles
Our camera traps detected a small herd of Arabian Sand Gazelles escaping the summer heat. Locally known as "Al Reem", they are native to deserts in the Arabian Peninsula.
Footage of a family of Pharaoh Eagle-owls captured through a camera trap. Our ecologists previously monitored these birds as part of our work in protected areas. They are resident across north Africa and the Arabian Peninsula.
Although they are quite widespread across Africa, leopards are pretty rare to spot in the wild and move with a sense of secrecy and stealth. Captured by an infra-red camera trap just 20 meters away from a campsite in Kenya, this very large adult male remained otherwise completely undetected.
