Stop Using GPS Collars to Track Tigers

  • By: Nyack Clancy
  • Target: National Tiger Conservation Authority, Ministry of Environment and Forests

GPS (Global Positioning System) collars been used to help researchers monitor and conserve tigers by locating them. Unfortunately, the information gained from these instruments could be instructing criminals, who have every intention on killing tigers, on the exact location of the endangered animal.

We ask that tracking techniques provided by GPS collars on tigers be banned. Illegal trafficking and poaching are thriving. Do not assist these criminals with the technological advances intended to assist wildlife protectors.
