Summer 2015 Newsletter: Vol 8. No. 1 - Fisher Team
This newsletter focuses on the conclusions of the Fisher Science Team who has been studying the Pacific fisher near Oakhurst Ca. Between 2007 and 2013, 110 individual fishers were captured, radiocollared, and tracked by fixed-wing aerial radiotelemetry. Additionally, cameras were placed within the Sugar Pine firesheds in 1 km2 grids, to determine variation in occupancy rates related to management activities. Ground-based radiotelemetry was used to monitor female fishers during denning seasons, and to recover carcasses of deceased fishers to determine cause of mortality. Results from this work are summarized in the newsletter. Please check it out here.
