WILDLABS newbie, so please bear with me.
Currently inherited a project focusing on making grazing better managed / more sustainable on a tiny (67 sqkm), very mountainous, remote island in Cabo Verde, for which we need to put GPS collars on goats.
Can anyone please advise on models more commonly used, or guidance on how to select collars?

Welcome to WILDLABS! I'm definitely not a tracking expert, but am in the midst of a movement ecology project and have come across two potentially useful papers:
1. Study that used GPS-GSM collars on an Ibex population: http://www.italian-journal-of-mammalogy.it/Individual-activity-interacts-with-climate-and-habitat-features-in-influencing-GPS,77108,0,2.html
2. Paper on using tracking tech to understand behavioral ecology of feral goats in the Hawaiian islands: https://escholarship.org/uc/item/7bk4j6jb
Hope these help!
