BRI recently hosted a production crew from the BBC's "Deadly" series including celebrity Steve Backshall. The crew tagged along with researchers on the mountain lion project in the Davis Mountains.
The Davis Mountains research project is investigating prey kill rates by radio-collared mountain lions.
Thomas Janke is a graduate research assistant from Granger, Texas studying desert bighorns. Thomas, along with BRI and TPWD, are restoring sheep to Big Bend Ranch State Park. The translocated sheep were fitted with GPS collars prior to release and Thomas is monitoring their movements in the park and across the border to Mexico.
Please mark your calendars for May 13-15, 2014 as TPWD and BRI are co-hosting the 26th Biennial Pronghorn Workshop at Sul Ross State University. The workshop will be chock-full of presentations by the nation’s experts in pronghorn ecology and management. More details and registration information is posted at the link above.
