Honours Student: Using camera traps to study social structure and behaviour of Javan Rhinoceros (Rhinoceros sondaicus) in Ujung Kulon National Park, West Java, Indonesia

In 2014, I completed a Bachelor of Science majoring in Zoology and Ecology at The University of Queensland. I am now commencing an Honours project at UQ with Associate Professor Salit Kark. I will be working in collaboration with Steve Wilson for his PhD investigating the ecology and conservation of the Critically Endangered Javan rhino. In my project, I will be using camera trap data to look at Javan rhino behaviour, with a particular focus on their social structure and interactions. Through this project I hope to be able to develop an understanding of what behavioural information can be learned through camera trap data that is of conservational value to this Critically Endangered species.
