Mammal Observations from Camera Trapping in Cat’s Hill, Trinidad

Kris A. Sookdeo, Charles Sookdeo


An informal investigation of the wildlife in the Cat’s Hill and Inniss Field area of the Victoria Mayaro Reserve was conducted with the use of trail cameras from March 2012 to July 2015, placed in a variety of habitats; including forest, the banks of forest watercourses and teak fields. Of particular interest in 2013 was the implementation by the government of a two year moratorium on hunting , commencing in September of that year (and therefore after the 2013 session as completed). This offered an opportunity to see what changes might occur in observations during and after the moratorium.
