What is the role of bird observatories? Simply put, you have the full gambit from research to conservation, and in between those is education.
How much is your desired dataset worth? The answer depends on the questions you are asking and the amount of difficulty involved in getting to the answers. To be sure, these data are incredibly valuable to you. It will certainly be valuable to the scientific researchers you may collaborate with, and the institution you are […]
With so much focus on advances in battery development, we thought now would be a good time to talk about wildlife telemetry and the impact batteries have. Increasing the body of scientific knowledge around animal movement is one goal most researchers share. This means getting data on animal movement. Electronic sensors can add incredible amounts […]
Take a look at a recent deployment project we contributed to. (Ours is the one with no external antenna!) If you’re a Wildlife Biologist, and you want to see the data from this bird for yourself, let us know when you’re available for a quick chat. We’ll send you a 32GB USB3 thumb drive with […]
This year, we have expanded the species for which our pioneering CTT FlightMode duty cycle is compatible. Since the spring of 2017, we have been working closely with PhD student Randy Knapik (Michigan State University) to roll out and test FlightMode for Mute Swans (Cygnus olor).
Identifying Eagle Behaviors Using Low-Cost Activity Indices Derived from High-Cost Accelerometry Data TRICIA MILLER*, SHELDON BLACKSHIRE, ANDREW MCGANN, ROBERT FOGG, and MICHAEL LANZONE, Cellular Tracking Technologies, Rio Grande, NJ, U.S.A. Recent advances in telemetry devices have made it possible to collect and recover acceleration data using cellular phone networks (GSM) that typically have larger coverage […]
Quantifying Bald and Golden Eagle Behavior Using High Frequency GPS Sampling and Accelerometry Data *MICHAEL LANZONE (email@example.com), ANDREW MCGANN, TRICIA MILLER, ROBERT FOGG, SHELDON BLACKSHIRE, Cellular Tracking Technologies, Rio Grande, NJ. Critical to understanding energy budgets is understanding how an animal spends its time. To improve our understanding of energy budgets, we continuously tracked six […]
Wildlife tracker devices are an incredible aid to your project. But will you get them in time? Are they are easy to activate and reliable? Is the data presented well? Design is key in all these areas. The design of a wildlife trackers impacts the level of time needed to manufacture them and their reliability. […]
