Wildlife biologist Paul Meek from Australia on visit

Paul is a research ecologist from the Invasive Animals Cooperative Research Centre in New South Wales, Australia. He is an expert on fox ecology and management. Paul has been awarded the prestigious Churchill Fellowship to study the application of remote camera trapping around the world and for different species and settings (including large carnivores like the lynx). The objective is to develop a handbook on camera trapping as a standardized and optimized technique for wildlife conservation management research in Australia. His mission will take him to the United States, the United Kingdom, Switzerland and The Netherlands. In the Netherlands he will be hosted by Erwin van Maanen from ALF/EcoNatura –Science for Nature & People, to study experiences with camera trapping and data analysis in the ecological study of mustelids and other mesocarnivores.
