Establishing TREE camera sites

Establishing cameras in the CEZ & first photographs

In November 2014 Prof. Nick Beresford and Dr. Mike Wood visited the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone to begin installing the TREE trap cameras  together with our Ukrainian collaborators Dr. Sergey Gashchak and Eugene Gulyaichenko. The cameras will be moved every circa 8 weeks.
