Welcome to Tangled & Trapped project (formerly Netting & Trapping)

Netting, trapping, and deterrents are widely used in both natural and anthropogenic landscapes (e.g., agricultural lands, aquaculture ponds) for many different purposes including protecting cultivation, consumption, recreation, merit release. We aim to collect data on all kinds of entanglement. The impacts of these activities on wildlife and ecosystems remained largely unquantified. Despite such practices being illegal in many countries, law enforcement has been mostly ineffective. Netting seems to be a particularly worrying issue in rice fields where granivorous birds are perceived as pests and nearby reedbeds they typically congregate. This is potentially an important threat to species of conservation concern such as Yellow-breasted Bunting (𝘌𝘮𝘣𝘦𝘳𝘪𝘻𝘢 𝘢𝘶𝘳𝘦𝘰𝘭𝘢), Manchurian Reed Warbler (𝘈𝘤𝘳𝘰𝘤𝘦𝘱𝘩𝘢𝘭𝘶𝘴 𝘵𝘢𝘯𝘨𝘰𝘳𝘶𝘮), Black-capped Kingfisher (𝘏𝘢𝘭𝘤𝘺𝘰𝘯 𝘱𝘪𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘵𝘢), and Lyle's Flying-fox (𝘗𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘰𝘱𝘶𝘴 𝘭𝘺𝘭𝘦𝘪).
