    Descriptive info: Information.. News.. News.. Did you know?.. The name.. Tamar.. was coined by combining the first syllables of the words.. ta.. rtaruga.. mar.. inha, which means sea turtle in Portuguese.. This abbreviation was necessary due to the restricted space for the inscriptions on the small metal plates used to identify turtles that were tagged for various studies.. Tracking sea turtles in Brazil via the Argos system.. Sea turtles, are highly migratory have a complex life cycle and use a wide range of habitats.. All five turtle species found along the Brazilian coast are endangered and included in the National Brazilian Endangered Fauna Species List of the Ministry of the Environment, and in Appendix I to the CITES convention.. These species include the loggerhead sea turtle (.. Caretta caretta).. , the hawksbill sea turtle.. (Eretmochelys imbricata).. , the olive ridley sea turtle (.. Lepidochelys olivacea).. , the leatherback sea turtle.. (Dermochelys coriacea).. and the green sea  ...   improved our understanding of sea turtle behaviour.. Adult females, for example, can migrate thousands of kilometres between breeding sites and feeding grounds.. Satellite tracking is used to map migratory routes and identify foraging and high-use areas.. Conservation implications.. Tracking data helped us understand some of the movements and high-use areas of sea turtles in Brazil.. These findings were used to organize certain human activities such as fishing, and to improve coastal management.. A factor of great importance is that the breeding and foraging grounds of most turtles tracked are located within Brazilian territorial waters.. This provides a good starting point to ensure the long term protection of this important portion of sea turtle’s life cycle, as many political and national conservation measures are already established..

    Descriptive info: White shark - © Michael Domeier.. The average size of the great white shark is between 4 to 6 meters long.. Males are smaller than females.. The age of males’ sexual maturity is around 8 to 10 years old while for females it is around 12 to 18 years old.. Although white sharks are known to prey on pinnipeds when in coastal waters, scientists still have no idea how sharks survive offshore for up to 16 months.. MCSI scientists have speculated that they may be eating squid or other marine species that feed on squid.. Argos and the Pacific white sharks.. Sharks are currently threatened all over the world, and the general public does not enough about their behavior and evolution.. For the past 12 years MCSI (Marine Conservation Science Institute) scientists have been studying the behavior and migratory patterns of eastern Pacific White Sharks by equipping them with SPOT and Pop-up Argos tags.. A real-time tracking (SPOT tags).. SPOT tags send a message to the Argos satellite system each time the shark fin comes out of the water.. The satellite may then establish a precise location  ...   the fish, floats to the surface and uploads data to the Argos satellite system.. Essential information to protect sharks.. Thanks to the Argos tracking, scientists have been able to determine the migratory patterns of adult white sharks, as they move between mating aggregations, offshore feeding areas and coastal pupping sites.. They also discovered that adult male and female migratory patterns are very different, especially while sharks are offshore in the SOFA (shared offshore foraging area) area.. These studies strive to identify habitats and regions that are essential for the survival of white sharks, while also determining when and where white sharks are most vulnerable.. Tracking of a mature female white shark.. the SPOT tagged female spent 15 months offshore before migrating into Sea of Cortez.. Her time spent offshore corresponded to her estimated gestation period.. Multi-year tracking of mature male white sharks.. The males sharks are offshore between approximately February and July each year..

However, it is capable of capturing small prey such as rodents, amphibians, young birds and dying fish floating on the water’s surface.. The mystery of Swiss black kits.. Black kites are very mysterious birds.. They have been difficult to study because they bear a close resemblance to parasite kites, which are very common in the Sahel dessert.. Tracking with 22 gram Argos tags.. In order to know a little more about this mysterious raptor and its migration, the scientist Adrian Aebischer has equipped three young kites (Salam, Milou and Kundera) with 22 gram Argos tags.. To equip the birds, the scientists (Adrian's team) had to climb to the top of the tree (32 meters) where their nest was located.. Thanks to Adrian Aebischer’s blog, it is possible to follow their tracks since June 12..  ...   is located in Senegal in Tabakouta, a city not far from the Atlantic coast.. Milou’s trip.. Meanwhile, Milou, stayed for weeks between Dakar and the forest located north of the city.. Return to Europe?.. “No one knows when Salam or Milou will come back to Europe” (La Salamandre magazine n°208 – février 2012)..

This is the largest land mammal in Europe.. The bison live in small family herds (30 max), headed by a female.. Reintroducing bison in Russia s Bryansk forest.. The population of European bison has continuously decreased throughout the 20.. century.. Today, many scientists are trying to reintroduce the species in Europe and specifically in Russia.. A bison reintroduction program is underway in the Western part of Russia.. The aim of the reintegration is to create a stable population of wild bison.. To manage this adaptation process, scientists have equipped two bison with Argos tags.. How to study bison once they return to nature?.. "Bryansky Les” is the first natural reserve to have ordered  ...   in order to avoid poaching.. Bison reintroduction tracked remotely by Argos.. In January 2012, the reserve of “Bryansky Les” released the bison to the surrounding forest to begin their adaptation process.. Currently, the bison have split into 2 groups.. One group is still around the reserve while the other is located about 30 kilometers from there.. Each group is led by a tagged bison.. The sharp decline of the European bison is due to hunting, disease, climate changes and agriculture that has taken over its habitat.. With Argos, Russian scientists hope to learn more about this endangered species.. Bison in the Briansky Les natural reserve equipped with an Argos tag (copyrights Elena Sitnikova)..

The GPS implanted on the mini-drifter transmits the position to the Argos system tracking.. (see trajectory map).. Before this technical innovation, it was difficult to obtain accurate data in coastal areas.. Long-term mooring of current meters is still difficult in coastal waters (drifters represent an obstacle for the navigation activities) and because satellite observations with standard drifters are too coarse.. In summer 2012, 10 more mini-drifters should be deployed near the Japanese coast.. Above: Mini-drifters before deployment.. Below: The trajectory of the mini-drifters off the Japanese coast..

Argos sheds light on migration of Cuckoos’ from Britain to Africa.. A group of scientists from the.. British Trust for Ornithology (BTO).. research institute have been alerted by the decline in population of cuckoos in Britain.. Over 50% of the birds migrating between Europe and Africa have disappeared over the past 25 years..

Tracking Cuckoos using small 5g  ...   In May and June 2011, the BTO research institute and its volunteers equipped five cuckoos with brand new 5g Argos satellite tags (Microwave Telemetry) to track their movements from breeding grounds in East Anglia to their winter quarters in Africa.. 5 different itineraries to the same destination.. Thanks to the satellite tracking, the five cuckoos were seen crossing the Sahara.. Each bird opted for a different trajectory but all ended up in the Congo Rainforest.. This valuable information should help scientists at.. BTO.. find a response to the declining population of the British cuckoo.. Migration routes of the five cuckoos..
