Technology, useful for better understanding wildlife

In the documentary series Connected wildlife presented by ICI Explora, biologists Grégory Bulté, Jade Legros and Daniel Dupont study wild animals using technology.

Grégory Bulté, a biology professor at Carleton University in Ontario, specializes in the study of turtles. Thanks to various technological tools, he can better situate the age of the turtles he observes and which can live a long time.

Bats, Jade Legros, a master’s student in biology at McGill University in Montreal, knows them well: “We don’t see them a lot. Technology gives us access to their way of life,” she says of these animals, which can eat up to 600 insects per hour at night.

“The wolves chose me,” says Daniel Dupont, a doctoral student at Memorial University of Newfoundland and wildlife biologist for the province of Manitoba. “GPS collars allow us to identify where they are and when, and […] to know their detailed movements”, emphasizes the researcher.

The three biologists also reveal some never-before-seen facts about turtles, bats and wolves, which you can see in the series Connected wildlife.
