Trailcam replacement

I've had a terrible loss - four cameras stolen out of Alder Creek in the Angeles National Forest.  I had been getting great wildlife images in that spot for two years, and almost never saw any other humans come through.  The thieves (there were two sets of shoe prints) cut through the cable locks with an axe or hatchet of some kind, and ripped one of the cameras off the tree with brute force, leaving parts of the shattered case behind.

I make no money from camera trapping.  It's a hobby I love, that I have used to raise funds for conservation groups such as the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy,  Arroyos and Foothills Conservancy, and Animazonia, a big-cat sanctuary. The 'work' is the most fun I can possibly have, but it is a lot of long hikes, carrying heavy equipment and constant maintenance.  Since I pay for all the equipment myself, I'm not able to afford replacing these cameras without some help.

If you enjoy these images like I do, I would be so appreciative of any contribution you could make to help me get back 'up and running' again. Thank you!
