A study to determine the frequency of off trail activities by domestic dogs at a regional park. Trail cams will be installed in sensitive habitat areas around the park and will compare leash optional to on leash trails.
We are monitoring wildlife corridors in central New Mexico to validate the existence of and movement patterns of large mammals such as Mule Deer, Pronghorn, Rocky Mt. Elk, Black Bear, Cougar and Bobcat. Our current focus is the transition habitat between the Sandia and Sangre de Cristo and Jemez Mountain ranges. This includes the Galisteo Basin and Rio Grande corridor.
