The Aspinall Foundation, started by conservationist John Aspinall, donated 100 camera trap units to the Indonesian Ministry of Forestry in 2010 to use throughout Ujung Kulon -- Indonesia's first national park.
Camera traps are an effective and unobtrusive method for conservationists to measure wild animal populations and track the frequency and distribution of their movements. This recent footage received by the Aspinall Foundation shows a Javan Leopard.
Javan Leopards are a subspecies confined to Java. Classified as critically endangered in 2008 by the IUCN their population is thought to be less than 250 mature individuals. They are threatened by loss of habitat, poaching and declining numbers of prey species.
