Argos reveals the tiger shark’s “marathon” migrations
Argos satellite telemetry has tracked Sooty Falcons from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to their wintering areas in Madagascar. The data provided a better understanding of the falcon’s behavior, and revealed habitats worth protecting in order to save this “Near threatened” species.
Ocean conservationists including Argos user Nan Hauser launch a global campaign to protect the Australian Great Barrier Reef.
