Since August last year there has been no transmitters available for tracking of darted animals. Tracking darts is a very important tool for many immobilization situations. Many scientists and wildlife managers have been missing the transmitters since August last year when the production of a crucial component in the transmitters were terminated.

Immediately when we realised we could no longer produce our regular transmitters, we decided, to start the development of a new state-of-the-art transmitter. With the important and generous support from the Danish Doberck Family, who have a lifelong engagement in nature and wildlife conservation, we have managed to develop the new transmitter in a very short time. Many tests have been made in Denmark and Spain throughout the innovation process and now we are ready to test the new tracking dart in-situ in the Masai Mara Nature Reserve in Kenya, Africa.
