Assess Long-term Viability of Restored Swift Foxes in Badlands NP and western South Dakota: Badlands National Park (BADL) began a three-year swift fox restoration program in 2003. A significant number of these released foxes are surviving to reproduce and will likely establish a population. Therefore, it is essential to continue to monitor this population by gathering reproduction, pup survival, habitat preference, and genetic information in order to assess the long-term viability of the population. This project will also guide future management decisions about population supplementation beyond the current release program. In addition, it will be important to determine if/when the Badlands swift fox population merges or connects with the resident swift fox population in southwestern South Dakota. These two populations would then begin to function as a metapopulation and thus increase genetic diversity and population viability.
