Animal location and activity tracking devices – could these be useful for conservation studies?

I have been working on sensors for remote tracking of livestock activity and location. They work in enclosed environments or for large areas. It feels like this technology could be very suitable for conservation studies tracking wild animals. Would anyone with experience of tracking animals for conservation research be willing to have a chat? I would be keen to find out what changes I would need to make to the technology to make it applicable for conservation.


I am in the process of creating remote tracking devices to study activity and social behavior in lemurs. I would be happy to chat and learn more about your study system / try to offer any insight about tracking devices.
