Satellite communications provider Globalstar said that it provides its STX3 chipset for SaveMyReindeer, a service provided by animal tracker FindMy, which began life as FindMySheep. SaveMyReindeer will alert owners and train drivers to any danger to roaming herds, using trackers in collars. Globalstar said trains kill about 6,500 of the Nordic region's 600,000 reindeer per year, with an estimated loss of EUR 8.5 million of livestock.
