Wildlife radio telemetry is commonly used for "in the field" wildlife research and wildlife protection. A radio telemetry antennae is able to "read" the transmission of radio signals coming from a transmitter that is attached to an animal. Using these transmissions, a ranger or researcher is able to locate the animal of interest. Radio telemetry is often used to obtain location data on the animal's preferred habitat, track an animals movements, determine an animals home range, and monitor population dynamics. Telemetry has been a valuable tool in conservation ever since it was introduced in 1960.
