Wildlife Ecology and Conservation Group

In the Anthropocene, human pressures on wildlife are reaching unprecedented levels. Animals, plants, and entire ecosystems must bear these pressures across different spatial and temporal scales. The Wildlife Ecology and Conservation Group (WEC) studies how humans influence wildlife. We examine both direct mechanisms like hunting and fire, and mechanisms that are more indirect and that are part of larger-scale processes, such as climate change.

Wildlife cameras

Camera traps provide an easy and non-invasive way to study wildlife. However, manually processing the millions of images that a typical study generates quickly becomes a challenge.By leveraging artificial intelligence, Agouti can automatically recognise many species and filter blank images.


The Wildlife Ecology and Conservation Group is involved in teaching several courses. Additionally you can do an internship or thesis at our department.
