A large screen has been erected to make sure that visitors to the Leenderbos wooded area near Eindhoven can see wildlife in action.

The Staatsbosbeheer (State Forest Service) set up the screen in a clearing in the forest. Dead animals, such as deer, which have been run over, are also placed at the site.

The Staatsbosbeheer places these carcasses back into nature, rather than disposing of them. In doing so, the organisation wants to keep scavengers such as raptors and foxes in the forest. A dead animal is a good food source for these animals.

Students from Wageningen University monitor the locations with game cameras. In this way, it is clear to see how different animals are being attracted to the dead animals. People can see follow this on Instagram.
