Irakli Shavgulidze
Co-ordinator, Conservation Programme
NACRES

I write as Conservation Program Coordinator of NACRES (Noah’s Ark Center for the Recovery of Endangered Species), a Georgian (former soviet republic) conservation NGO.

We purchased 5 TM units in 1999 and I must say that we are extremely happy with the performance of your product. … Since 2000 we have been using TM’s for almost all of our research and conservation projects throughout Georgia. We had photos of brown bears, martens, wild boars, etc. However it was an overwhelming shock to all of us to have a leopard on one of our TMs in April 2004.

Three TMs had been set up in the Vashlovani National Park (SE) for about 3 months. The work was conducted under the GEF/WB Georgia Protected Areas Development Project. The Leopard (Panthera pardus) was long thought to be extinct in Georgia. We had been getting more or less credible reports on leopard sighting from the Great Caucasus mountains every now and then.

Nevertheless it was probably just us who believed that this species could still remain in Georgia. The photos were the first solid evidence of leopard presence in the country for more than 50 years. Thus we also had the first photos of a wild Caucasus leopard. Since then we have been monitoring the leopard and other animals (such as brown bears, lynx, gray wolves, wild boars etc) in Vashlovani National park using TMs.

Texas

I have attached a picture of the federally endangered red-cockaded woodpecker - RCW (Picoides borealis) after it landed on its cavity tree. We have the trap set up in Texas. Our configuration of placing the monitor/receiver/camera on the same tree appears to work with good success. "

Vietnam
These photos were taken in Vietnam by Flora and Fauna International (UK) Indochina Programme.

Sumatran Rabbit (Nesolagus netscheri) Critically Endangered First ever photo in the wild. One confirmed sighting in 1972. Last collected in 1916. Presumed extinct until photographed with TrailMaster in 1997. (Note what appears to be a Flying Fox on the ground behind the rabbit.)
 
Clouded Leopard (Neofelis nebulosa) Vulnerable Very rare to see a clouded leopard during the daytime.
 
Asiatic Golden Cat (Catopuma temmincki) Near Threatened
 
Saola (Pseudoryx nghetinhensis) New species First ever photograph of Saola in natural habitat taken with TrailMaster in Pu Mat Nature Reserve.

"There is always a high level of anticipation when we check the negatives from the camera traps as we are never sure what will be there, so it was a wonderful surprise to see a Saola looking straight into the camera." --Mike Baltzer (FFI)

 
Marbled Cat (Pardofelis marmorata) Data Deficient for UCN category
 
Sumatran Tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae) Endangered
 
Civet (Viverra tainguensis) Newly discovered.

"This new record for the reserve, and for the distribution of the species, is also thought to be the first confirmed photograph of a live example of this species in the wild."
--Stephen Reynolds

These photos of deer were taken in Kansas by Chuck Buckley with TrailMaster. Chuck lives near the TrailMaster office and stops by often to show his photos.

 


Japan
These photographs of an owl in flight are taken by an anonymous photographer with TrailMaster 1500-PS. Look closely to see the captured prey in the second photo.



Kae
Kae Kawanishi has taken many great photos using the TrailMaster 1500 in Malaysia. This photo of a tiger is one of many.



Karanth
Tiger photograph taken in India by Ullas Karanth (WCS). Ullas has been using TrailMaster equipment since 1992.

"As you know I have been promoting your fine product strongly among other field biologists. You will be pleased to know that a forthcoming BBC/National Geographic film on tigers which covered my project recently will feature TrailMaster and its use in tiger censusing quite prominently." --Ullas Karanth.

Ullas has been a leading force in tiger conservation for many years. We added the Multi-Camera Trigger in response to a special need Ullas had to be able to operate two cameras with one TrailMaster monitor.



Traska
Jeff Traska, an avid ourdoorsman and photographer, purchased his first TrailMaster system in 1990 and has taken many wonderful photographs of bear in Wisconsin.



Matt Linkie
Sumatran Tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae) Endangered This incredible tiger photo was taken by Matthew Linkie with the help of a TrailMaster TM550 Passive Infrared Trail Monitor.

"The clarity of this tiger photograph is a good illustration of the high quality results that TrailMaster cameras can produce." --Matthew Linkie

"The deer research continues with your equipment playing a lead role." --Skipper Dickson



Belize - Carolyn M Williams
Jaguar (Panthera onca) photo(1993) taken in Belize by Carolyn Miller (WCS).

I'm sure you will agree that this is a once-in-a-lifetime shot... it blew up to something like 18x24 very well and now hangs in Chan Chich Lodge where it attracts a great deal of attention. If you look closely at the photo behind the animal's hip, you will see a light colored stick... this is where the sender is mounted but blocked from view. You might be interested to know, the same animal was photographed a month later about 6PM at a TM location even closer to the Lodge." --Carolyn Miller



Bartolo
Albino deer photo taken by Steve Bartylla, Northwoods Whitetail Adventures.

"Not only are TrailMaster units invaluable for allowing me to get an accurate whitetail census, they also allow me to capture once in a lifetime pictures. This albino fawn is only one of many pictures that I would have never been able to get on my own. Whether its getting an accurate population estimate, sex ratio, age structure or once in a lifetime photos for seminars and articles, I use TrailMaster because they simply are the best!"
--Steve Bartylla
