I found this thanks to Geekdad, who says …

It is fantastic.

The site, which launched March 3, is designed to be a clearinghouse for motion-triggered “camera traps” used in research across the world to identify, count and observe some of the world’s most elusive animals. It is another example of “this is what the web was made for,” as pictures that are usually only seen by fortunate scientists are now available for anyone with access to the internet to see.
