Wildlife Watchers: Lotek Wireless

The name is misleading. Accurately tracking bird migration patterns or assessing the effects of dams on salmon navigation requires exceedingly high-tech instruments. That’s what Lotek has pioneered. Their unique radio and satellite technologies monitor fish and wildlife in 35 countries. The Ontario-based company’s motto is “Innovative solutions for a sustainable future” and its efforts toward sustainability and conservation include ecological research work from Africa to the Queen’s University Ecological Observatory and the University of Waterloo.
