Coral Pink Sand Dunes Tiger Beetle: The tasks to be performed under this agreement are as follows: 1. Will use a two-pronged approach for characterizing the preferred habitat of C. albissima and assessing anthropogenic alterations to that habitat: a. Field assessment of current geological conditions and b. Historical assessment of aerial photographs to examine habitat changes over time. 2. The field assessment will use a systematic sampling design capable of correlating tiger beetle abundance and distribution with the following geologic parameters: - Sediment grain size (mean and sorting/standard deviation) - Soil moisture - Sediment compaction - Depth to hardpan (compacted sand, silt, or clay layer, soil horizon, or organic matter) - Map of hardpan location - Dune characteristic: Type (as delineated by Ford et al., 2010 ); Location along dune (stoss or backslope, lee, trough, crest, avalanche face or slipface); and, Slope (degrees). 3. These data will be collected in both undisturbed (including protected habitat, the translocation area at the north end of the dunes) and disturbed areas (travel corridor) within the Park to assess the impact of humans on the natural environment. 4. Historical and recent aerial photographs (as accessible via internet and available on Google Earth) will be used to determine if differences in dune characteristics control the distribution and abundance of C. albissima. Of particular interest are dune (crest) migration, plant cover, and human activities during the time periods before and after the 1999 conservation agreement. This Single Source Award is being made in accordance with Department of the Interior Policy 505 DM 2.14 B #4 Unique Qualifications which allows for award without competition to an applicant. The applicant is uniquely qualified to perform the activity based upon a variety of demonstrable factors such as location, property ownership, voluntary support capacity, cost-sharing ability, if applicable, technical expertise, or other such unique qualifications.
