Panda cameras help struggling endangered species
The Giant Panda has been an endangered species since the 1980s, and VideoSurveillance.com is now helping to grow the small panda population. Using Vivotek IP8332 Outdoor Bullet Cameras, PDXWildlife can now track female panda behavior to improve the breeding program.
Dedicated to using scientific research to improve conservation, PDXWildlife worked with VideoSurveillance.com to design a custom panda surveillance system. With the new video footage, scientists can watch for signs that female pandas are entering their yearly breeding time. Armed with this information, the success rate of breeding pandas in captivity will likely increase and keep the species from going extinct.
The Vivotek IP8332 is perfectly designed for this type of surveillance. The pandas are kept in outdoor habitats, and the cameras come in water and dust-proof housing to protect them from bad weather. Because of the natural outdoor environment, the Vivotek cameras were uniquely suited to provide clear images in the completely dark conditions with their Day/Night capability and on-board IR-LED illuminators. And because PDXWildlife is based in the U.S. while the pandas are in China, the IP8332 is ideal with its ability to broadcast multiple high-res video streams to different locations.
