Check out this quarter's newsletter for a look at how to initialize your tags prior to deployment and how to use haul-out mode for other things besides pinniped research.    ...

In January, SpaceX launched a Falcon 9 rocket with 143 nanosatellites—a record number of spacecraft on a single mission—five of which were from a Swiss company called Astrocast. Wildlife Computers joined the Astrocast Pilot Program in 2020 to evaluate Astrocast's network as a supplement to...

Quantifying the effects of pop-up satellite archival tags on the swimming performance and behavior of young-adult mahi-mahi (Coryphaena hippurus) Juvenile bearded seal response to a decade of sea ice change in the Bering, Chukchi, and Beaufort seas Hunting by the stroke: How foraging drives...

The haul-out function is much more useful than first meets the eye. Not only will it alert you if the tag comes out of the water but it also improves Argos tag initialization results by extending the initialization transmission duration due to the slower haul-out...

We know not all animals can survive being released from a fishing net after an inadvertent capture, that’s one reason we developed the Wildlife Computers sPAT tag. This tag helps monitor the survivorship of an animal for up to 60 days after release. There are...

Instead of staying near Antarctic shelf breaks and enjoying ALL the krill, Antarctic minke whales appear to search for areas with gaps in the ice and then hang out there until the surrounding ice melts. It really is neat what you can discover with some...

Do you know how journals and funding agencies are all encouraging (or requiring) us to make tracking data publicly available in online databases? Studies like this are one of the reasons why. Requena et al (2020) used telemetry data from almost 400 animals to identify pelagic...

Why is the initialization process important?  Note: Do not initialize pop-up tags We highly recommend tag initialization prior to deployment for our SPOT and SPLASH tags to help ensure locations are received as quickly as possible after deployment, regardless of animal behavior. Tag initialization allows Argos...
