A University of Minnesota professor is using a "crowdfunding" strategy to earn money to transmit photos of lions from Tanzania, according to the Minnesota Daily.
Professor Craig Packer has worked to place "more than 200 heat- and motion-activated cameras" in Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, reported the Star Tribune.
According to the Minnesota Daily, these cameras produce over a million images a year, but without Internet access, the team cannot transmit them back to the university.
The team estimated it will need $14,000 to get their station online, and hopes to raise this money through the SciFund Challenge online, reported the Minnesota Daily.
"People who are interested in this type of work can actually donate and do their part in helping us complete this project," Packer said, according to the Star Tribune.
