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, GPS position and acceleration. These compact systems allow scientists to study animal behavior without interference by a human observer. For more than 25 years, the National Geographic Crittercam Program has worked with researchers, providing insight into the lives of whales, bears, sharks, seals and sea lions, cheetahs, wolves, sea turtles, penguins, alligators, and many others.
