Using Radio Telemetry to Understand Elusive Species

Since the 1960s, scientists have been using radio telemetry to locate animals and track their movements. Wildlife radio telemetry is a tool used to track the movement and behaviour of animals. This technique uses the transmission of radio signals to locate a transmitter attached to the animal of interest. Wildlife radio telemetry has advanced the research opportunities available for studying animal populations. Specific migratory routes and dispersal behaviour can be followed through radio tracking. Survivorship is often monitored with radio telemetry by studying age and mortality rates.

This webinar, ‘The Nature’s Eye’ teaches you the importance and the uses of radio telemetry and how it can be used to study Russel's Viper ecology and other elusive species. From this, common people could learn about an important aspect that has been practising for decades and give knowledge to young minds.

Topics to be discussed:

  • Introduction to Radio Telemetry

  • Uses of Radio Telemetry

  • Russell’s Viper Ecology

About the Speaker:
Gerry Martin is a herpetologist, conservationist, and founder of The Gerry Martin Project. He has been working with reptiles and other wildlife for over twenty years. He was National Geographic Channel's first Indian "Adventurer" in 2000. He was a part of the team that first bred and successfully raised King Cobras in captivity in India and has worked with a vast variety of other reptiles and amphibians. Today, his focus is on tackling the snakebite crisis in India and developing platforms by which local stakeholders can gain from and support conservation in their locality.
