A big part of my job is working with teachers to integrate my camera trap research into their classrooms. Students from around the world learn science during their school day by doing real science through our eMammal program. Since 2014, students around Guadalajara in Mexico have been setting camera traps around their schools. Here are the 11 amazing camera trap photos from Mexico all taken by kids!

We couldn’t have done this without the children setting camera traps. We use their camera trap photos from Mexic to study the abundance, behavior, and conservation of these animals.

Here are some of the amazing students that set the camera traps!
