There are now major journals that publish under green and gold open access.

I think now you would be very unlucky to be forced to publish behind a paywall 
in order to get PhD. Anyway one does not need a PhD to publish in a journal 

About 1) others have answered. At minimum publish the data related with the 
paper. IMHO that would be the minimum ethical choice, others can replicate and 
later reference and increase h index (which sadly is another currency).

About point 2) some of it was discussed in JPI symposium last week(I can send 
some notes if needed). You could have so it is made available upon request, 
treat it as you would with studies relating to personal data. Or how free 
software treats security related bug reports (I don't know how this is done).

I am of a thought that you could use the trackers as an anti-poaching scheme. 
If they are tracked live I would say poachers would avoid them. Consult with 
WWF or something along those lines.

Good luck.
