Camera traps in Georgia’s national parks and protected areas are continuing to spot various wild animals in the country’s uninhabited land.

Below is a collection of the latest camera trap videos from the Borjomi-Kharagauli National Park in central Georgia.

This camera trap spotted a group of boar piglets. 

The park is also home to many deer and roe deer. 

Several years ago camera traps were installed in Georgia’s protected areas and national parks to capture footage and prove that a variety of animals, some rare, lived in the country’s uninhabited areas.

Apart from spotting rare animals, photo traps were also a good tool to reduce poaching and identify offenders. If the devices noticed movement, such as an animal passing by or illegal hunting, it recorded the image and sent it to the Administration of Protected Areas. This helped the national parks and protected areas to prevent poaching in the area.
