The CTT LifeTag is a tremendous advance in multi-year wildlife research, especially for smaller animals. Here are five ways it beats old-school VHF tracking. If you’re not excited yet, wait until the bonus material!
Wildlife biologists researching potential conflicts with wind power turbines in Pennsylvania, USA, and curious about the origin and destination of Eastern Golden Eagles compelled Mike Lanzone and Casey Halverson to develop something better than satellite technology. The resulting high-frequency of location points gave a far better data set, allowing the researchers to better describe flight […]
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 […]
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).
Quantifying Bald and Golden Eagle Behavior Using High Frequency GPS Sampling and Accelerometry Data *MICHAEL LANZONE (firstname.lastname@example.org), 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 telemetry devices are an incredible aid to your project. So long as you can get them in time, they are easy to activate, they are reliable, and the data is presented well. Design is key in all these areas. A wildlife telemetry device’s design impacts the level of time needed to manufacture them and […]
