Pygmy Rabbit GPS Collar at 14 grams

With automated remote data download and Smart GPS

As of 2015 this is a newly redesigned product that we call The FLR V. It has evolved from the original FLR that we started making in 2010.

In late 2015 a client worked with Telemetry Solutions in order to develop a Pygmy Rabbit GPS collar that would meet her needs and not harm the rabbit. With several emails and phone calls we understood what she needed and supplied 12 collars. Initially there was one design issue that needed to be resolved. Here is what that client said after receiving her collars.

"...thanks very much for working with us on the collar designs and repairs! And, thanks for rushing the repairs -- the collars arrived on Friday. We are really pleased with the data the collars are providing! Laura estimated ~90% fix success rate (and we guess that the rabbits are likely in the burrows at least some of the time when there are missed fixes), and the locations appear to be tightly clustered around burrow systems. We will do static trials to quantify fix rate and location errors during the summer, but the preliminary data look good. In addition, the batteries seem to be lasting longer than anticipated, likely because the animal's body is moderating the temperature (it was -12 F one morning last week)!

Thanks again for your time and help!

Janet"
