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.
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 […]
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 […]
