Camera traps are remote cameras, which can be set up almost anywhere. They are motion activated so when a creature wanders past they will either start recording video footage or taking photos. They are also fitted with infra-red lights so work in both day and night – ideal for detecting whatever creatures you have living near you!
We’re delighted to be able to offer free camera trap hire to anyone living in the PL24 postcode area for 2016! We are unfortunately unable to offer any cameras to anyone outside this area at the moment but hope to be able to do so in the future.
If you live in Par, St Blazey or Tywardreath and would like to see what wildlife visits your garden please fill in our online form and we’ll be in touch as soon as we can.
Camera traps are best at detecting larger wildlife, including most mammals and some birds. Have a look below at some of the different species we’ve seen in Cornwall.
