Pinniped

Wildlife Computers offers an extensive collection of back and head mount glue-on tags for pinniped research. Talk to us about your requirements to find the right package for your project. Pinniped tags are supplied with a layer of Peel Ply for easy adhering. Peel Ply is a thin polyester sheet attached to the base of the tag that creates a clean, well-prepared surface ready for attachment. Once Peel Ply is removed, it reveals a uniformly-textured surface on the base of the tag that maximizes the bonding of the epoxy used for gluing the tag onto the animal.

Life calculations assume a nominal 250 Argos transmissions per day and, if applicable, 24 FastLoc locations per day. Please note, life calculation estimates are not listed for TDR tags. This is because battery life and memory fill time vary greatly depending on the programmed sampling rates.
