In 2018 Anitra started a common telemetry project on Red kites Milvus milvus with TB Raab (Technisches Büro für Biologie Mag. Dr. Rainer Raab) in the western part of the Czech Republic. A total of 13 Red Kite chicks were equipped by Anitra GPS-GSM backpacks in 2018 and even more in 2019. Our work is contribution to a much broader European conservation initiative aimed at tackling illegal activities against raptor species. The effort on the European level is coordinated by Mag. Dr. Rainer Raab.
The tracked animals are continuously monitored and any data possibly indicating mortality are evaluated and physically checked in the field if possible. Anitra Platform offers elaborated mechanisms that analyze the incoming telemetry data and trigger warning notifications in case of detected mortality. Additionally, powerful project management and data visualization tools allow sharing the data across the distributed team of collaborators and project partners. Anitra integration mechanisms also offer options of hosting data generated by transmitters of different brands This enables a complete overview.
