A trail cam is a remote camera that records images as either still photographs or as video and is designed to record animals in the great outdoors. In recent years such cameras have produced many images of endangered animals around the world.
This year will see the CFZ return to the jungles of Sumatra looking for the Orang-Pendek. It is planned to equip the team with a number of trail cams to attempt to capture an image of this mystery animal.
Unfortunately trail cams don’t come cheap and without wanting to sound vulgar by talking money, we are looking at a price of £100 per camera. I am co-ordinating the appeal for funds to purchase a number of cameras for the CFZ to use.
Without further ado, let me introduce you to the CFZ trail cam fundraising mascot: Trevor.
Trevor is a lonely trail cam and as you can see he is languishing in Trail Cam hell, the warehouse. Like all of his kind he wants to be out in the wild and is looking for a sponsor to help in his quest for freedom and action.
To release and sponsor Trevor will cost £100. If that seems a little steep, why not get a group together to sponsor one of these trail cams? A group of five will pay just £20 each. Sponsors will get an update on any pictures and when something exciting is spotted your name will go up in lights alongside the photo.
Don’t despair if you miss out on Trevor, he has plenty of friends who also need help in breaking free.
Your sponsorship will pay for the release and upkeep of Trevor and kin, but sadly you will have no rights to take him home.
Now doesn’t that sound like a good deal? Armchair cryptozoology at its best. All the fun of an expedition without being bitten by scary tropical insects.
If you like the sound of this then please get in touch, we would love to hear from you.
