Reindeer killed by hunters get safety app. “Protect Reindeer, Protect animals.”
Reindeer, who killed by wolves, wolverines and mostly lynx, are being fitted tightly with sensors to protect them. It seems Because of the protective app for Reindeer’s it makes it easier for shepherds to track the animals or heards across the faraway Lapland forests where these animals roam. The sensors which are attached around the necks of female raindeer are directly linked to the herder’s smartphones, which helps them to rescue animals, which are hurt, more quickly and more important identify the cause of death of these animals.

This system is a superb plan but is only used to rescue the animals which are hurt. To protect the endangered generations of Reindeer’s, we must have taken another plan which should be more superb then previous. So, for this purpose the team which is responsible for the previous system, also behind the plan to make another one to track the predators in the next year.
In a recent survey, it was told that up to 10% of Reindeers are lost each year only because of the traffic accidents or hunted by bears, wolverines and wolves. Most reindeers are killed by lynx, cosidered worst predator for them, and the team decided to make a plan to track them in the next year, 2018, in order to know at what time they are in close proximity to herds.
Theses sensors for protection were attached to some animals which are selected at the bi-annual reindeer collecting up in September. The shepherds discovered that it was the best plan to put the trackers on dominent females or the female who is the head of the family, to enable them to best locate the whole herd. The trackers on reindeers neck use GPS satellite signals in order to know the location of the reinder. These trackers are directly communicated to shepherd’s smartphones via low power. These are specifically designed network which removed the need for each device to have a mobile subscription.
The head of the Finnish Reindeer Herders’ Association, Matti Sarkela said:
“We have high and strong beliefs of the internet of things.”further more the main challenge is “that nowaday’s sensors are still quite large and big. We need a sensor that continues for a year, at a very low cost, and also with improved location technology. it can be difficult to get good GPS signals in the high Arctic. Now we are working on finding the best mix of technology and getting the best sensor.
The current sensors, which are used, have been suplided by internet of things firm Activity, while Finnish communications firm Digita started rolling out a special long-range network dubbed LoRaWAN last year to give reportage to some of Lapland’s most far away forests.
The mapping and visualization software which comes from Finnish start-up Mapitare, which started the life creating offline-enabled maps for the difficult emergency services. Reindeer herding is a big business in Lapland area with up to 300,000 animals being managed each year, making and generating $25m (£19m) from meat, fur and antler products.
The reindeer spend their majority of time in the wild, roaming here and there, where they choose which puts them at risk. In a single incident in Norway, Last month, 100 reindeer were killed by a train.Mr Sarkela told: “This tracking system brings real advantage for the reindeer and for our shepherds.
“There are the clear ones, like rescuing the animals that are hurt or affirming the death of an animal to claim compensation, but by tracking them all the time, we can understand their behaviors and better care for them.” Moreover he said, technology could help make “the life of the shepherd easier”, which in turn “makes it more fascinating to the younger generation”.
It is not the first time the association has move to technology. More than 10 years ago, they started using GPS and three years ago, they launched a smartphone app named Porokello (reindeer bell) which enabled drivers to report reindeer near roads and convey cautions to others.
