Trying to figure out how to preserve and increase salmon populations in the Pacific Northwest is increasing in priority. A recent report sent to Long Live the Kings, Salish Sea Marine Survival Project, studied the influence of artificial light and resident Coho and Chinook on...

Researchers set out to better understand the spatial ecology of the ringed seal. They deployed Wildlife Computers SPLASH tags on 39 seals. These data provided a glimpse into ringed seal movements and foraging behavior during mid-and late-summer…something that was previously under-studied. The Ringed seals stayed...

Wildlife Computers SPOT tags were used on bottlenose dolphins in the Indian River Lagoon. The study provided a detailed look at the nocturnal movements and habitat use including foraging strategies, feeding events, and range size. This study shows the role that satellite telemetry plays in...

Rees et al (2020) used Wildlife Computers SPOT tags to track 21 female Loggerhead turtles in Greece. Their results confirm the benefit of using tracking technologies to determine Clutch Frequency estimates for marine turtles. Consequently, these benefits also allow for better population estimates and highlight...

Ontogenetic Niche Partitioning In Southern Elephant Seals From Argentine Patagonia Influence Of Hunting Strategy On Foraging Efficiency In Galapagos Sea Lions Normalizing Home Ranges Of Immature Kemp's Ridley Turtles (Lepidochelys Kempii) In An Important Estuarine Foraging Area To Better Assess Their Spatial Distribution Marcatura...

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...
