Biologging / Feed

Real-time tracking of animal movements is enabling more effective and efficient wildlife monitoring for management, security, and research. As devices get smaller and prices drop, the possibilities for using biologging on a larger scale have grown, and so have the possibilities for increasing customisation to meet specific research needs. Likewise, real-time tracking of illegal wildlife trade, timber, and fish products as they move from source to consumer can shed light on trafficking routes and actors, as well as support enforcement, making tracking gear a powerful tool beyond the field.

Hi Dennis,

I actually work in the graduate career center at my university (my fellowship is doing that rather than teaching) and this is what we specialize in! I too am a PhD student moving out of academia after the PhD. Many of our office's online resources are applicable to any PhD student, not just those at the CUNY (City University of New York) Graduate Center. Check it out: cuny.is/careerplan. I'm also happy to chat or answer any questions. The Wildlabs 'Resources' page is a great place to look for internship opportunities! I would also highly recommend getting a Twitter if you don't already have one, and utilizing that. There are a bunch of hashtags (#PhDchat, #altac, etc.) that may be helpful to watch for, and then you can also follow org's so you can see when they post opportunities. 

Hope this helps! 

All the best,

Carly
