Thousands of animals, including birds, fish and marine and land animals, are fitted with miniaturized Argos transmitters and tracked worldwide. Along with data collected from sensors, position information allows biologists to better understand animals’ behaviour: feeding strategies, breeding, adaptation to their environment, etc. Such observations provide the basis for conservation measures aimed at helping many endangered species. In addition to its ecological value, this work allows the international community to learn more about our environment’s natural resources and interactions between humanity and wildlife.
