Recently scientists focused on the dive behavior and foraging efforts of Cape fur seals using Wildlife Computers dive recorders. Most dives were less than 50 m deep showing that the fur seal diet may largely focus on small schooling fish because these dives don’t expend as much...

Knowledge is power especially when it comes to turtle conservation. Researchers used Wildlife Computers SPLASH tags to learn more about distribution, population size and trends, movements, and habitat use of leatherback sea turtles in Brazil. Read the Research...

New research outlines 15 best practices for using externally attached telemetry devices on pinnipeds. The best practices provide guidance to help mitigate possible negative outcomes. The recommendations cover the following categories: justification, capture, tag design, tag attachment, effects assessments, preparations, and reporting. Read the Best Practices...

Wildlife Computers tags that include a temperature-depth recorder combined with an accelerometer allowing the detection of the rapid head movements that characterize prey capture attempts were used on 12 elephant seals over the course of three years. The study revealed that elephant seals attempt to catch...

Marine fouling (biofouling) happens when organisms attach themselves to underwater objects like building structures, ropes, and especially satellite tags. Once attached to a tag, biofouling will inhibit a tag from transmitting a signal to Argos satellites. A tag with biofouling will also experience more drag,...
