This research is meant for the design of wildlife animal tracking system using GPS and GSM. This explains the methodology to overcome the problem of animal injury and mortality due to straying of wild animals out of national parks and wildlife sanctuaries by the use of wildlife tracking system. Automatic tracking system has been implemented by incorporating GSM and GPS technology in the form of a device that would be attached to the body of an animal and would be continuously monitoring the position of the animal with respect to the GPS defined boundaries setup inside a wildlife sanctuary or national park. In case an animal strays out of the GPS defined zone, the coordinates specifying both the latitude and longitude information of an animal informing the concerned officer about the approaching danger. This system is flexible, low cost and simple to execute and can be beneficial for monitoring wildlife related complexities like poaching, railway and roadway accidents, destruction of vegetation and threat to life on the straying of wild animals out of their habitation area.
