Catwalk

Although there are about 12 million cats in Germany and 600 million worldwide, we know very little about what they do behind the cat flap. With your help, scientists would like to uncover the wild secrets of the cats and observe their movements.
The results will help to understand hunting behavior, what personality traits individual cats have, what they feed on outside, who they meet and how far they go.

Animal Snapshot

Help our researchers to explore the animal world by placing a motion-sensitive "camera trap" on your property. Of course you are allowed to see the pictures first, only then the pictures will be added to the database. The data is used to record developmental trends in animal populations in and around Konstanz.
