An advanced sensor solution to conserve endangered wildlife and efficiently manage large park areas. OpenCollar is a conservation collaboration to design, support and deploy open-source tracking collar hardware and software for environmental and wildlife monitoring projects. The design of the tracking system is completely modular and it is possible to combine the modules into several different configurations, depending on the use case.

The Elephant Tracker is the largest OpenCollar tracker available and features an extra-large sized waterproof housing, advanced GPS tracker with LoRaWAN and Bluetooth connectivity, additional Lacuna Space LoRaWAN satellite connectivity and years of battery life under normal conditions. The tracker is mounted to an animal using a highly durable BioThane collar with an optional drop-off mechanism also available.
