Monitoring wildlife population trends is essential for resource management and invasive species control, but monitoring data are hard to acquire.

Citizen science projects may monitor species occurrence patterns in time and space in a cost effective way. A systematic management program of exotic wild boar (Sus scrofa) and axis deer (Axis axis) in a protected area of north eastern Argentina (El Palmar National Park) provided a framework for implementing a wildlife monitoring system based on park-affiliated hunters.
