Track: Environmental Management
Authors: Caroline Patrick
The Southeast Arizona Grasslands Pronghorn Initiative collected data on fence types in the Las Cienegas area to understand how certain fence types affect pronghorn movement. Staff used iPad tablets along with protocols modified from Arizona Game and Fish dept. The data was then used to guide fence modification efforts. This paper discusses the process of selecting this technology, protocol development, the data collection process, and predicted changes to the grasslands post fence modification.
