We did it! You did it! (Thanks!)

We have made our fundraising goal of $33,000. Our cameras will keep running through the rest of this year, and we’re laying plans to keep them going after that. Thank you so much to each of you who contributed to the campaign (And thank you, too, to those of you who just shared the link, or who tried, but couldn’t due to Indiegogo’s limited payment options.)

We’re not quite done – there’s still a day left and any donations we receive will still go towards the costs of operating the camera trap network. If today goes exceptionally well, then we might even be able to expand the network of camera. The good news, though, is that YOU DID IT and Snapshot Serengeti will continue far into the future.

National Geographic has put together another article for your enjoyment, this time based on Snapshot Serengeti. It’s got 18 animated GIFs based on the sets of three images you see when you classify. Have a look for a Friday smile.

And thank you again for bringing smiles to our faces.
