Our ICIMOD Knowledge Park in #Godavari is a treasure trove of flora and fauna and we’ve started to document wildlife presence and movement there with camera traps. The animals captured so far in the park are wild boar, barking deer, Himalayan or masked palm civet, large Indian civet, yellow-throated marten, rhesus macaque, black-naped hare, #leopard #cat, jungle cat and common leopard!

The #HKH is a rich hub for data and we’re excited about the possibilities of using machine learning to help sort through the immense amount of data that can be collected from camera trapping.
