Our January 2016 Newsletter

Dear Movebank users,

We begin the new year in the midst of continued growth and new beginnings, and with a request for feedback. Researchers are currently using Movebank to store nearly 250 million animal locations in over 2,200 user-created studies. Movebank's growth (see charts below) reflects both an increase in users and an increasing number of high-resolution tags recording animal movements around the world.
