Transmitters by Attachment Type

We offer a number of different ways to attach tags to your species. The most important consideration is the effect of the tag upon the bird (or other species) that you are trying to study, followed by your project requirements of tag range and tag life. Biotrack can adapt the following attachment techniques to your species:
