Online training workshop: camera trap distance sampling, 3-7 April 2023.

Several methods exist for analysis of camera trap data to estimate
animal abundance. Use of distance sampling theory for analysis of camera
trap data does not require identification of individual animals to
estimate abundance, making it applicable to a much larger set of
species. This live online workshop, through lectures and computer
exercises, provides training in survey design and the analysis of camera
trap data to produce abundance estimates. The workshop lasts 4 days,
but is delivered over a 5-day period to allow time for self-study.

The workshop is organized by the Centre for Research into Ecological and
Environmental Modelling (CREEM) at the University of St Andrews.
Instructors are:

Eric Howe, Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry,
Samantha Strindberg, Wildlife Conservation Society,
Len Thomas, CREEM, University of St Andrews,
Steve Buckland, CREEM, University of St Andrews and
Noemie Cappelle, Wild Chimpanzee Foundation

Registration is UK£320 and the registration deadline is 20th March 2023.
There is one free place available as part of our widening participation
scholarship programme - see the web site below.

For more details and to register, please see the workshop web site

We also teach other workshops on distance sampling-related topics - for
more information please see

Currently, other planned workshops are
- Distance Live introductory online workshop, 20-31 March 2023
- Distance sampling when animals are missed at zero distance, 14 & 16
August 2023
- A practical guide to distance sampling survey design and simulation,
28-31 August 2023

Lastly, we have a free online recorded training workshop introducing
distance sampling at
