Wildlife Tracking Wizardry

With Brian Cresswell, Director, Lotek UK

Wildlife tracking technology has advanced dramatically in recent years, with ever smaller and more sophisticated tags, especially GPS, which provide data quantity and accuracy that research biologists previously only dreamed of.

Brian Cresswell talks about the latest developments in animal tracking with examples of how tracking devices have been used to discover the secrets of nightjar migration, clues to why cuckoos are declining and how old-fashioned radio-tracking still has an important role, such as helping to prevent an invasion of Asian hornets.

Watch this talk from the comfort of home on the NHSN Youtube Channel, premiering Friday 27 November at 7.00 pm.
