Here is some information about our Wildlife track and sign montoring project:

Casey McFarland, a Professional Wildlife Tracker,  is currently working with us to set up some regular trail lines to walk (called “transects”) which can be used to gather data on how many, and what kind of animals are crossing a given area.  Once we have enough people trained in basic track and sign identification, we can then train volunteers to walk these transects and collect data on a regular basis.  This is also being done in Southern AZ, see the Sky Island Alliance Home .
