Argos, protecting endangered species

Argos telemetry plays a central role in protecting endangered and vulnerable species from all biomes – marine, terrestrial and avian. Satellite telemetry reveals key conservation parameters such as population connectivity, the location of critical habitats such as spawning, nesting and nursery grounds, refuging areas, migration routes and flyways. Satellite telemetry is essential for assessing the post-release survival of animals released from fishing gear or following rehabilitation in captivity. This Argos Forum highlights the important work done by Argos users to understand and protect endangered species worldwide.
