Can We Use RFID Chips to Track Tigers in Large Forests By Embedding a Chip Inside the Body of Each Animal?
If so, what range of transmitters or receivers would be necessary for an area spanning 11,000 square kilometers?
No, that would not be possible, I'm afraid. Radio frequency identification is a short-range technology. Tags designed to be implanted under an animal's skin are low-frequency (LF) tags that can be read only within a foot or two. GPS devices banded to a collar would be much more effective for your needs.
