National Geographic's Remote Imaging Team Needs You!

We work with researchers around the world to tackle conservation mysteries and other scientific puzzles. To do so, we custom-design a Crittercam for each species we work with, giving special consideration to the animals' needs. Will you help us build and deploy underwater Crittercams for some of the sea's wildest creatures?

As a scientist and engineer guide you, choose your parts wisely—one mistake could endanger the mission. And don't leave without seeing what makes it all worthwhile: actual video recorded by the critter.
