Monitoring natural resources, biodiversity and wildlife data is crucial for economic and ecological sustainability. But in areas that are hard to reach, monitoring becomes a problem.

It takes many man hours to keep tabs on these places but technology is being developed to enable remotely located cameras to do the work for us.
