Wildlife Monitoring

Copernicus provides a wide range of products and services for wildlife monitoring applicaitons. The species tagged with our tracking devices range from birds to lynxs and bovidae.

Use Case

Wild boar Tracking

Wild boars turn out to be comparably easy to catch, but particularly difficult to tag using common tracking collars.

That's why we've developed a tracking device which is both practical with regards to deployment and less of a burden for the tagged animal.

Due to the neck shape, tracking collars are not the preferred choice of tracking devices for wild boars. Instead, ear-tags have proven themselves as a valuable alternative. Advantages of ear-tags are

  • Reduced risk of losing the device
  • Less interference with the tagged individual's movement
  • Tracking of juveniles is possible
