The article focus on the ICARUS initiative (International Cooperation for Animal Research Using space), which among other things is hoped to help in creating early warning systems to predict natural disasters before they happen, and also give information of spread of diseases and climate change. 
A number of tracking techniques are also described, of which nanotechology - which so successfully is used by CAnMove PI Lars-Anders Hansson and his lab - is highlighted by Wikelski as one of the important future techniques.
