De Hoge Veluwe: News from forest ranger Henk Ruseler - October

27 October 2021

29-SEP-2021 - In 2020, research was started at De Hoge Veluwe National Park to permanently monitor the insect fauna using innovative monitoring. The DIOPSIS camera set-up is used to photograph, recognise and monitor insects fully automatically. This allows changes to be detected more quickly and actions to restore biodiversity to be started earlier. Forest ranger Henk Ruseler talks about the new generation of DIOPSIS cameras and the sunny September afternoon on which he accompanied Theo Zeegers, project leader at EIS Knowledge Centre for Insects, when he collected the two DIOPSIS cameras from the Otterlose Zand. See the entire article on Het Nationale Park De Hoge Veluwe.

On De Hoge Veluwe, research into the behaviour of our wild animals has been carried out since 2013. Snapshot Hoge Veluwe, the citizen science study that the Park started together with Wageningen University & Research, has already yielded a lot of interesting data about the behaviour of our wild fauna, thanks in part to 14,901 volunteers and 3,365,351 observations made. If you prefer to spot wildlife live on the Hoge Veluwe instead of watching and judging dated photo series, please visit Live wildcam De Hoge Veluwe.
