Radio-tracking equipment

This set of images shows equipment used for radio-tracking animals during field experiments. For example, capturing, collaring then releasing a fox to study its movements, home range and behaviour or collaring a feral goat to track its movements during a ‘Judas goat’ control program.

The images show:
* a radio collar, which is fitted to the animal and emits a signal
* an antenna, which picks up the radio signal from the collar and transmits it to the receiver
* a receiver unit, which converts the signal from the antenna into an audible sound
