There is a plan to attach sensors for satellite monitoring to cranes in the Moscow suburbs
«It's about attaching miniature GPS loggers to cranes' paws, i.e. devices that can receive information from a satellite constellation and transmit it to another device or write it to a built-in memory. It has been established that cranes fly away to spend winter in the countries of the Middle East and the Northeast Africa, but little is known yet about sites along migration routes where the birds stop and/or congregate. Satellite monitoring will make it possible for scientists to research the issue in more detail,» Alexander Kogan, the Minister of Ecology of the Moscow Region is quoted by the press-service as saying.
