  • Today is my 2 year anniversary in Namibia! 2 years ago today I arrived and started working as a vet. I’ve loved every single minute of it! I’m happy that I could make a difference for so many animals, and I hope I can make a difference for many more in the years to come! But I’m also thankful for the new friends I made, and my friends from Belgium who came over and visited me and this beautiful country! #reflection #anniversary #namibia #wildlifevet

  • The heartbreaking reality of poaching...
~
An adult female was shot down for the keratin horn on her face, but that night the poachers took 2 lives, as she carried in her womb another life that never got a chance to see the world, to take a breath, to feel the grass under its feet...
~
Please don’t report this image- the world needs to see the brutal reality of the destruction of our world, and take action to protect it.

  • VET VISIT FOR SHAE
Sound on to hear our Director of Operations, @arcticcrystals

Our beautiful rescue, Shae, is part of our #Westeros Pack. This family of wolf-dogs had a horrific few years before we rescued them. Life with us has been better than they could have dreamed, including a visit by #gameofthrones author, #georgerrmartin. His wife, Parris, is their #packmama and named them after characters from #asongoficeandfire. But, alas, they still have some drama.

Shae is on her way to the vet today to have her injured eye removed. We have seen this type of injury before in another Westeros Pack member, Summer. We are almost positive it is result of normal discipline going a bit too far. Sadly, Shaggydog's inhibited bite is not so inhibited.

Summer is doing great since he fully recovered, and we are hopeful Shae will heal just as quickly. We are so grateful for superior vet care from @tlcpethospital, our fantastic staff and #volunteers, and for your thoughtful support! 😘😘

  • So following up from my last post on tracking collars--> this collar uses both VHF and LoRa geolocation.
.

The white box there is the LoRa component. While VHF (see previous post) can be used to physically locate and get eyes on the animal, the LoRa network can tell you remotely where the animal is. It's comparable to a cellular network.  Your phone uses a cell tower to send/receive info.  The LoRa device communicates with a locally based tower called a gateway, which is the link between the device and the server.  The gateway receives data from the collar via LoRa.  The server communicates with the gateway via the Internet. .

LoRa is restricted to low bandwidth, and the tradeoff to this is a very long range and battery life. .

There are a couple ways that the LoRa network can be used for geolocation. Location data can be generated using GPS (about 30 satellites orbiting at 20 000km) but the GPS chip reduces battery life.  The other way is triangulation via the gateways.  With three or more gateways picking up the signal, the animal's location can be calculated.  The more gateways in the area, the more consistent and precise the data.  This system can operate for several years without needing to change batteries! .
