A guide for attaching devices to vultures and condors
Tracking vultures and condors using Platform Transmitter Terminal (PTTs), GPS-PTTs and GPS-GSM tags, contributes both to basic and applied research and conservation.
To share expertise and knowledge, a three-day Global Workshop on Methods for Attaching Tracking Devices to Vultures and Condors attracted tag attachment experts from around the world who demonstrated their materials and methods to each other by deploying real and dummy tags on real vultures.
The workshop led to the development of this guide, published as a Special Edition of the VSG's journal Vulture News. The VSG hopes that researchers studying vultures and condors will make good use of the guide and study its recommendations carefully. There is no substitute for practical demonstration and training by experts in this field.
