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 tracking technology for wildlife telemetry. 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 […]
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).
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 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. […]
There have been some incredible advances in tracking devices used in wildlife research, particularly for small birds. Wildlife telemetry devices have shrunk in weight, for sure, and there are far fewer trade-offs to realize the weight advantages. What would you need in tracking devices for your next project to make them ideal? Here are some […]
