Over 350 individual Canada Geese have been tracked with CTT’s patented GPS-GSM technology for wildlife telemetry, and the compiled location data span across the vast Nearctic wilderness, including metropolitan and suburban areas. The iconic and familiar species still hides many of its secrets from researchers. But with insights gleaned from long-lived transmitters, wildlife researchers and […]
Wildlife researchers and managers who use wireless telemetry devices generally have three choices for retrieving data: A) Short Range Radio, B) Satellite Uplink and C) Cellular/GSM. Each have their own pros and cons including A) data throughput, B) restrictions on the weight your animal can bear , and C) energy constraints. At CTT™, we want […]
There is so much data that can be gathered using modern wildlife telemetry that it is easy to just put tags on animals and see what we get. But this approach can lead to problems, which can easily be avoided. The best approach is to have clear goals at the outset of the project.
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 […]
