Please Include Additional Citation Sources[edit]

Hello! While this is an extremely interesting article, there are several facts referenced that lack citations to their sources. For example, the last paragraph on the page that refers to the increase in tracking animals due to the disastrous BP oil spill has no citations. Without the citation of sources, we have no way of knowing for sure that animal tracking has increased in comparison to prior years, let alone being able to verify the information that followed concerning the limited options of researches who use electronic tags. I would also recommend that the information be evaluated for accuracy on a regular basis in regards to the examples of animal migrations. The Florida manatee is still currently an endangered species, but the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has proposed that their status be changed to "threatened" as their numbers have continued to increase in recent years.

The article has a lot of potential to be educational, but above all other corrections can be made, the information contained here needs to be properly cited. Cantrell39 (talk) 05:08, 23 January 2017 (UTC)
