Movebank is a global online infrastructure created to help researchers manage, share, analyze, and archive animal movement data. Researchers can use Movebank regardless of species, study area, or source of funding. We support tracking data collected using GPS, Argos Doppler, radio transmitters, light-level geolocators, and natural markings or bandings. We also hope to be useful to educators, students, conservation groups, and others interested in animal movement. The tracking data in Movebank are owned by the researchers who have collected and uploaded them. If you are interested in collaborating on research, conservation, or educational projects that use animal tracking data, we are happy to help connect you with Movebank researchers, partners, and other users.
