Feral Horse Capture Telemetry Research Project

This research was conducted in partnership with National Parks and Wildlife Service to provide remote video monitoring and capture of feral horses in the Oxley Wild Rivers National Park. The project delivered innovative solutions to abate problems experienced by staff in relation to excessive travel; Occupational Health and Safety; and animal health and security. Provision of repeater technology and wireless telephony links are allowing national parks employees to monitor horse activity, and effect capture at the push of a button anywhere in Australia.
