The costs of the first 4 transmitters, and fees for receiving the satellite tracking data for the period of 1 year, were paid for by a WA Department of Parks and Wildlife (DPaW) community grant, and an Australian Geographic Society seed grant. DPaW's Science Division supported the subsequent research on eagle diet and breeding at Matuwa/Lorna Glen until the end of 2014. Curtin University also contributed by covering costs of tracking data from 2 PTTs for a year.
Between October and December 2015 the 'Where Do Wedgies Dare?' crowdfunding campaign successfully raised more than $21 000 for the purchase of two GPS/Satellite PTTs, plus 2 years' data. This was thanks to an amazing bunch of 236 supporters jumped on board to pledge their donation!
