Dear Customers and Friends,
We hope you are safe and well. There is much uncertainty in the world today as we tackle the novel coronavirus, to a point where the uncertainty is almost as frightening as the virus itself. Sadly, it is our connectedness that makes us most vulnerable, yet our best chance for tackling COVID-19 at this time is by social distancing to slow its spread while the world's scientists and doctors search tirelessly for a solution.
How COVID-19 is Affecting Us…and You
The health and safety of our staff is our top priority. Our office is closed for the time being; however, our team members continue to work from home as their capabilities allow, including key staff who are able to continue limited production from their personal workshops. While we adjust to this transition, our goal remains providing you with high-quality, reliable tools to further your research. We will continue to complete orders as quickly as we can so that those of you still capable of tagging will not be more hindered in your efforts.
At this time, we are continuing to accept orders for later in 2020.
We will adapt as the situation progresses, and we eagerly await the time when many of your crucial studies can once again get off the ground.
In addition, we will not be releasing a Spring edition of Tracker News, our semi-annual newsletter, but we will keep you informed of any major changes via email and here on our website.
See our Long-Term Storage Instructions for how to safely store and charge your transmitters until your tagging efforts can resume.
30th Anniversary Photo Contest
2021 will mark MTI’s 30th anniversary. By next year, we hope to be celebrating much more than our anniversary, but the beginning of our global recovery.
In the meantime, we invite you to help us gather photographs of the many achievements, both great and small, from the last three decades of animal tracking. We will be sharing our favorites in our upcoming publications, and will award prizes for the best photos including free transmitters, free refurbishments, and more!
See submission guidelines here.
This is a crucial time for us to work together as a global community. The sacrifices we make now play a pivotal role in protecting all of us in the future.
Thank you for your patience, and we hope that you, your loved ones, and your colleagues remain safe. If you would like to reach us with questions or concerns, the best way to contact us at the moment is via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All our best,
The Team at MTI
