WEBSITE - History of the Crittercam

National Geographic's Animal Cameras have grown gradually smaller over the years, and are commonly known as the Crittercam. One of their first prototypes was deployed on our old friend, the Juan Fernandez Fur Seal. These cameras help us get ever closer to seeing wild animals behaving naturally, without pesky humans disturbing their routines...
National Geographic's Crittercam is a research tool designed to be worn by wild animals. It combines video and audio recording with collection of environmental data such as depth, temperature, and acceleration.
