Isaac Dauge and his Forest watch team have been trained in the use of camera traps.

The camera traps have uncovered some brilliant species so far this year. In Milne Bay, PNG, there’s a well-established population of the elusive Southern Crowned Pigeon which is currently listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red list and is the biggest pigeon on earth. Another rare species found is the Forest Bittern.

Isaac has presented the results of these sightings to the whole community, raising awareness for the important biodiversity that the community is protecting in their forest. The images have also been printed and are now on display in Gadaisu school for environmental education classes.
