Understanding the Earth’s biodiversity
Argos is the only satellite system capable of connecting very small transmitters
Coupled with its global coverage and capacity to be easily integrated into new innovations, Argos offers the means to improve knowledge that is vital for implementing conservation measures, effective land management, and fighting against poaching and massacres.
Discover the wide range of solutions currently available for four major wildlife categories:
Today, 14% of species threatened with extinction are birds. The top five threats to birds are industrial farming, logging, invasive species, hunting & trapping & climate change.
Argos offers the possibility to combine location data from a wide range of existing bird transmitters with Earth Observation data to better understand bird migrations in the face of climate change.
Argos Solutions for Bird Tracking
Argos is capable of tracking birds and their migrations across the world thanks to its global coverage.
Thanks to miniaturized trackers weighing as little as 2g, Argos provides solutions for nearly 3500 different species of birds making it possible to track and locate species whose migratory behavior hasn’t yet been determined.
Concerned there is a problem with your tagged bird? Get alerted to any changes or use the CLS platform finder to find your active tags.
The numbers of many species is decreasing at an alarming rate and the number of marine families listed as endangered, such as whales, dolphins, manatees and sea turtles, are on the rise.
More than just a location and data collection system, Argos provides you with various tools to help analyze changes and understand behavior.
Argos Solutions for Marine Animal Tracking
As a robust & reliable system, Argos makes it possible to track marine animals in each of the Earth’s oceans & seas.
In spite of the apparent difficulty of observing these animals, extremely robust and reliable Argos transmitters can record a variety of information such as temperature and depth providing key insight into their ecology.
Meteorological data such as currents, sea surface temperature, phytoplankton provide further insight into marine animal movements.
Has your Argos tag detected too soon? Has it been a while since your turtle surfaced? Concerned about the location of your seal? Dedicated alerts and the CLS platform finder can identify anomalies and find your active Argos tag in the field.
Using predicted environment from ocean-biogeochemical models, our experts can integrate spatio-temporal and multi-population dynamics and consider interactions among populations of different marine species and between populations and their physical and biological environment.
Argos provides an affordable solution to help understand the distribution of animals in a given territory in order to protect them more efficiently.
Argos also offers a solution to support herding, species re-introduction and species protection.
Argos Solutions for Land Animal Tracking
Follow land animals in near real-time thanks to Argos’15-minute revisit time.
Around 2,000 land animals are tracked with Argos every month thanks to robust equipment that can withstand the most extreme environmental conditions.
Synchronize your tracks with Meteorological data such as Ice cover and Earth Observation data such as vegetation to better understand migrations.
Is your lynx not moving? Has your lion moved out of your natural reserve? Get alerted to alarming changes and use the platform finder to locate active tags in the field.
Using the Argos satellite system to track fish and study their migrations and distribution areas has proven crucial for the implementation of effective conservation methods, to define protected areas or even to establish periods of catch.
Argos Solutions for Fish Tracking
Adapted hardware and global coverage make Argos an ideal partner for tracking fish.
In spite of the apparent difficulty of observing fish, extremely robust and reliable Argos transmitters can record a variety of information such as temperature and depth over a period of time providing key insight into their ecology.
By combining transmitter light level measurements with sea surface temperature and bottom topography, our argos experts provide an enhanced underwater geolocation service that works for all pop-up and internal tags for fish.
Once your tag has been programmed to detach, use the CLS platform finder to retrieve it when it reaches the surface. The platform finder can find active tags in the field up to 100km away.
Models developed by our experts,and using argos data, are capable of simulating population dynamics and the impact of environmental and climate changes on fish populations.
Southern Ocean seals are frequently tracked marine animals. They thus provide a lot of environmental data on an otherwise poorly observed ocean. This includes bathymetry of the Antarctica...
King penguins breed on a few colonies spread around the Southern Ocean. Some years are more successful than others in that respect, and understanding why could help in protecting such threatened...
Harbour seals living in the North Sea are exposed to a heavy ship traffic. New Argos archival tags enable to record ambient sounds, so that noise exposures can be quantified at the seals’ level. A...
