Animal tracking has undergone a technological revolution providing
insight into biological details that were impossible to address until
now. However, the increasing ease of access to tracking devices
(biologgers) may lead to trivializing this technology. Consequently,
many projects may not extract as much scientific knowledge as possible
and neglect the ethical duties towards the tagged animals. Here we
demonstrate this process of trivialization empirically on a local and
global scale and propose some guidelines to avoid it.
