Consider sponsoring one of our GPS equipped Mallards for exclusive access to movement and survival information on your duck and other sponsored birds through our Mallard Tracker Sponsors Program. Sponsoring a Mallard will not only mean a featured biography of you or your sponsored group on our Mallard Tracker page and access to follow the birds daily movements in Google Earth, but it will also include receiving a tax receipt for your donation to Long Point Waterfowl’s research. By following the hens in Google Earth, you can see every individual movement tracked for each sponsored bird that our GPS units record. Location data will be posted with a one-week delay to ensure the safety of our birds. These Google Earth maps Joy-septare interactive and allow users to zoom in/out and click each point to determine information such as time of day, date and follow these movements to the bird’s next location. To give you an idea of the information available, we have included a screenshot of the Google Earth maps available to sponsors in this post. This specific map is of NODU26 named Joy, Joy is sponsored by the Southwest Outdoors Club, who are also featured in the photo at the beginning of this article.
