Abstract Remote cameras are an efficient and non-invasive survey tool that can be used in a range of research and management applications for wildlife. How remote cameras are used and deployed depends upon the question or the objectives of a project. This booklet provides information on the general uses and application of remote camera technology for wildlife research projects, and the planning and implementation of remote camera surveys in northern Australia, especially tropic savannas. It includes information on camera types, setting cameras in the field, other equipment requirements, targeting different mammal species, the use of baits, and data storage. Information relating to the type of data collected with remote cameras, analytical techniques and important statistical requirements are outlined. Included are recommended standard operating procedures developed by the Flora and Fauna Division, Northern Territory Department of Land Resource Management, for using remote cameras as part of general wildlife surveys and monitoring programs in tropical savannas of the Northern Territory.
