The concept of the Colloquium

Camera trapping is the hot technique for wildlife monitoring, but do we expect more than the technology can provide?

The Australasian Wildlife Management Society in collaboration with the Invasive Animals CRC and partners are hosting a Camera Trapping in Wildlife Management and Research Colloquium at the ANZ Lecture Theatre, Taronga Zoo, Sydney Australia, 13-14 September 2012. To help us with developing the program and organising the Colloquium, please register your interest.

The Colloquium is open to any researcher, land manager or student who uses camera trapping to carry out research and monitoring of wildlife and will also bring together Australian and International camera trap trade displays.

The results of the recent survey on preferred session themes identified four clear themes:

  1. Data and image management, identification and analysis
  2. Camera trapping for animal monitoring; case studies
  3. Survey design, standards and protocols
  4. Camera technology, constraints and pitfalls

Colloquium Planning

The organising committee is now preparing a two day program based on these themes. The format of the Colloquium will include presentations by Invited Guest Speakers in each theme, followed by a series of related shorter talks (12 min) with no question time. At the end of each morning and afternoon session it is hoped to include a professional facilitated discussion session where delegates can ask questions of the speakers and raise important discussion topics. It is hoped that this will stimulate some interesting dialogue between participants.


Sponsorship opportunities are available if you are interested in contributing financially to the Colloquium.  We have limited opportunity for trade displays so be quick if you want to participate in that capacity. Download the Sponsorship and Exhibition brochure or use the links in the left hand column for additional information.

On behalf of the organising committee we welcome your participation in attending the first ever International Camera Trapping Colloquium in Sydney Australia.
