Project Description

e-Mammal India seeks to promote scientific understanding among children between the ages of 11 and 14 through the lens of applied scientific research between middle schools Maharashtra, India. Considering its immense value in engaging and providing the latest conservation tools to students, we aim to replicate the study to a larger target audience. e-Mammal is a Citizen the science-based project that uses camera traps to document animal population sizes, activation patterns, and habitat use. The camera traps are motion-activated and have an infrared flash, to minimize the disturbance of the animals. The e-Mammal project is a citizen science initiative. Citizen science is an emerging area in which public participation is at the center of scientific research. The e-Mammal project as a citizen science project involves school children for generating data for scientists through camera traps to document the wildlife activity. Later the data is used in studying and research on scientific aspects like population size, activation patterns, and habitat use. the children interact with each other will enhance cultural awareness. the children interact with each other will enhance cultural awareness and understanding while helping all students prepare to become global citizens in an international workforce. A social networking component (similar to Facebook) will allow children to share experiences with each other. At the same time, teachers (a secondary audience) will have their own link on the e-Mammal website where they can network with each other through a forum, share teaching strategies, compare best practices and offer advice. e-Mammal scientists will also visit this forum and answer any questions teachers may have regarding the science behind this project (such as confirming species identification) and provide teachers with support as they guide their students through eMammal International.
