This paper demonstrated the use of Depth-Temperature profiles from Wildlife Computers PAT tags, and high-resolution oceanographic models to estimate the movement of basking sharks in the western Atlantic. Basking sharks generally dive too deep to measure dawn and dusk light levels thus are a challenge for light-based...

This study used concurrent Fastloc GPS and Argos satellite data obtained from Advanced Dive Behavior (ADB) tags developed by Wildlife Computers to assess Argos location errors for sperm, blue, and fin whales. Location accuracy estimates for blue and fin whales were broadly within the range...

Using satellite tracking and dive recording, this study characterized vertical and horizontal movements of humpback whales in coastal and pelagic habitats of the Coral Sea during the breeding season. 18 humpback whales were outfitted with Wildlife Computers SPLASH10 tags to gather data on almost 8,000 dives above...

This study follows the rescue of a common bottlenose dolphin who remained in freshwater for at least 32 days. After rehab, the dolphin was outfitted with a Wildlife Computers SPOT tag to track the dolphin’s location. Unfortunately, twelve weeks after release, the dolphin was found...

  Studying where marine predators find prey and what type of prey they attempt to capture is challenging. The authors of this paper specifically wanted to test the hypothesis that anti-predator light flashes from bioluminescent prey would be closely associated with prey capture attempts. To test...

The US Animal Telemetry Network (ATN) has been working for the last two years to make ocean profiles collected by animal-borne satellite telemetry tags such as the Wildlife Computers SCOUT-CTD into the WMO Global Telecommunication System. Read the story...

Over 400,000 hours were spent watching Tiaki a Northern Royal Albatross from Pukekura/Taiaroa Head in New Zealand. Viewers were excited to see Tiaki leave the nest for the next step of its journey—a Royal Albatross will spend up to 10 years traveling around the ocean before...

The Arnavon rookery in the Solomon Islands is the largest rookery for hawksbill turtles in the South Pacific. It’s especially important because hawksbill turtles are critically endangered. In 1995, the Arnavon Community Marine Conservation Area was established to protect not only the turtles but the...

It’s not easy being green—Kermit the Frog Unless you commit to it. For the last four years, Wildlife Computers has been recognized as a green business by EnviroStars. The EnviroStars program recognizes businesses that follow practices to limit their environmental impact and protect their employees. This...
