Terms & Conditions
The competition is open to Cinereous Vulture and Griffon Vulture conservation projects only - the tag provided by Ecotone Telemetry is better suited for these species.
Projects must be primarily based in Europe.
If you win the competition, you will need to provide at least three stories (300 words minimum) to the Vulture Conservation Foundation.
1. Discussing the importance of GPS tracking and why it is essential for your project
2. Story of tagging and releasing the bird
3. Update on the bird's movements after 2-3 months
Discuss the provision of the tag and the competition in your communication channels. Mention the Vulture Conservation Foundation and Ecotone Telemetry.
The tag will be available in early April and can be deployed from mid-April onwards provided you give us the information necessary 6-8 weeks in advance.
You will be responsible for the tagging in an animal safe way, including the catching and all required permits.
The project receiving the tag will be responsible for the data management and checking the data daily to assure the wellbeing of the bird.
The VCF will include the data in WildlifeMonitor, where it also can be shared with the project team. Further, a public map will be created which can be included in the website of Ecotone Telemetry, VCF and the project receiving the tag.
Furthermore, Ecotone Telemetry offered to bear the data transfer costs for the first year (160 euros). After the first year, the project receiving the tag will be responsible for paying the data transfer fees.
Moreover, Ecotone Telemetry can assist the winner of the competition in the use of the GPS tag and provide manuals and important information necessary. Ecotone Telemetry will have control over the settings of the tag and data transfers.
The winner will be selected based on the information provided in the Google Form, considering the following criteria:
Urgency of conservation project
Need of GPS tag
The winner will be announced at the end of February through the contact information provided on the Google form. The winner will also be announced on the communication channels of the Vulture Conservation Foundation and Ecotone Telemetry.
