As most of you know, an elephant died on Djuma recently and its carcass is still present close to Twin Dams. A carcass of this size will cause lots of activity for a couple of weeks and therefore we thought it might be interesting to install a temporary camera near it. Thee stream will provide an insight into how nature recycles the valuable nutrients in a way that helps many other species survive.
In order to be able to stream from here Conrad, with great on-site support from Brent and Tristan, installed a special wifi link and the Nest cam we still had in our Tech room. Note that this is a static cam without zoomies so it can not move or zoom.
The system is now operational and can be watched at nestcam.crm-api-integ-220516.mystagingwebsite.com. We will leave the camera active as long as there are interesting activities to be seen. Note that we might put it off-line at times in order to be able to swap out batteries or when human guests come into view.
Finally, a special thanks for Jurie and Pippa Moolman for their permission to install and run this special feed.
