A new way to track bird movements using a growing LoRa network
About the author
Jethro is a conservation science PhD student at the University of East Anglia. His research uses data from GPS tracking of birds to better understand where and when birds are most at risk from wind farms and powerlines. This will become ever more important as we strive for net zero carbon emissions. As a NEXUSS CDT student a core part of his PhD is focused on testing and developing new autonomous systems, such as the LoRa tags, for monitoring the environment. Previously he worked as an ecological consultant for Direct Ecology Ltd and co-ordinated a youth group for the RSPB.
