Research

The Lakeland Wildlife Oasis has contributed towards numerous interesting research projects over the years, many of which have had direct application.

For one project, the researcher took multiple photographs of our snow leopards - some from very odd angles! These were then used to train software to recognize individual wild snow leopards by the odd snaps caught in automatic camera traps, which has proved very useful in the field. Many other research projects have had a less obvious immediate application, but still collect information that may be important at some future date.

We are very keen to develop our links with local universities and are looking to contribute to future research projects that benefit our understanding of the natural world. If you are considering any study that could involve the creatures in our collection, please feel free to get in touch to discuss your proposal.
