A cheaper way to track a pangolin that has been released is by using VHF radio. As the satellite will only send the pangolin’s location a couple of times per day (to save battery) we need another way to pinpoint its location on the ground. A VHF signal allows us to find the pangolin, who is normally in a burrow during the day, and monitor it when it emerges to feed.
Having both satellite and VHF trackers gives us full redundancy and when we are happy that the pangolin is thriving we locate it with VHF and remove both trackers at the same time.
