Bird migration research, Expedition in Mali



Project management











Scientific research provides the basis for the conservation of endangered species and for the longterm preservation and restoration of ecosystems and protected areas. We offer research capabilities on purely scientific aspects of wildlife biology as well as on topics directly related to management and conservation.

Deployment of state-of-the-art technology
During many years of wildlife research we have always aimed at keeping track with the development of new and sophisticated research technologies and to obtain the best possible results by applying such methods. Among those are high-tec methods for communication and data transmission used during expeditions, digital data loggers used during behavioural studies and for recording climate data, satellite tracking with solar powered PTTs and GPS transmitters for the study of bird migration, and methods of remote sensing. For the analysis of ecological data and bird migration locations we use satellite imagery and digital maps and apply various specialised computer software programs.

Field research worldwide
We have worked during the past 20 years on contracts in more than 30 countries in Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Our close contacts to specialist scientists of varying disciplines in most countries proved to be very valuable during these projects. Research subjects ranged from limnological surveys to large mammal studies. In recent years focus of our work was on projects about long distance bird migration (using satellite telemetry and remote sensing) and on research about the functioning of arid and semiarid ecosystems.

Professional reporting
We always put much effort into the preparation of our research reports. We aim at presenting the results precisely and in a readable manner, printing them in an attractive layout, with professionally styled graphics, maps and photographs. We believe that an attractive presentation of results should be an important and integrative part of each research project. Our research reports are perfectly suited for presentation to fastidious readers, and in many cases they can directly be used as mastercopies for printing books and brochures.
