GPS backpacks specifically designed for your wildlife project

Three different choices for your wireless GPS data download

GPS backpacks can be used on many bird species but are not limited to birds. Beavers can wear GPS backpacks with no harness for them to get tangled in. Pygmy rabbits are another example of animals that have been successfully studied with our GPS backpacks.

Your GPS backpack will be custom designed for the wildlife study that you are working on. We start by asking you the maximum weight for the GPS tracking device and then go from there. Please click on the How it Works button below to learn more about this product and the three different ways by which your GPS position data can be transmitted remotely.
