Large Mammal Capture & Survey on Alaska Peninsula: The US Fish and Wildlife Service, Headquarters Region 7 intends to award a single source Cooperative Agreement in accordance with 505 DM 2.14 B. to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Division of Wildlife Conservation. This notice is not a request for proposals and the Government does not intend to accept proposals. Award will be made 10 days after this notice. PURPOSE: The continued monitoring, management, and study of factors affecting the abundance of the Northern Alaska Peninsula Caribou Herd (NAPCH), Southern Alaska Peninsula Caribou Herd (SAPCH), Unimak Island Caribou Herd (UCH), moose, and wolves on the Alaska Peninsula. Data regarding population demographics such as population composition, recruitment, and survival rates provide information that is fundamental to the Department's management decisions regarding the NAPCH, SAPCH, UCH, moose, and wolves. Radio-collared animals are an essential component of monitoring activities as they provide information regarding the locations, movements, and survival rates of caribou, moose, and wolves on the Alaska Peninsula. This information facilitates appropriate management of caribou, moose, and wolves for the long-term benefit of subsistence and recreational users. The purpose of this agreement is to provide support and assistance to the Department in acquiring information fundamental to the management of caribou, moose, and wolves on the Alaska Peninsula. OBJECTIVES: The objectives of this agreement are to provide support and assistance to the Department for capture and survey operations. Capture and survey operations will be conducted by Department wildlife biologists and Service wildlife biologists of the Alaska Peninsula/Becharof National Wildlife Refuges during 2010-2011 with the option to extend provided support and assistance up to 60 months. Capture operations will be conducted within Game Management Units 9C, 9E, 9D, and 10. BACKGROUND Consistent with the principles of ecosystem management and the laws and policies listed below, effective management of the Refuges is done in close coordination with the State of Alaska. The Department has the primary responsibility for managing resident wildlife populations such as caribou, moose, and wolves. Estimates of population size, composition, and recruitment are fundamental to the Department's management decisions regarding seasons and bag limits for caribou, moose, and wolves on the Alaska Peninsula. As a major land manager of caribou, moose, and wolf habitat on the Alaska Peninsula and Unimak Island, the Service has an interest in the status of these large mammal populations. Therefore, the staff of the Department and the staffs of the Service at the Alaska Peninsula/Becharof National Wildlife Refuges regularly cooperate on surveys and studies of caribou, moose, and wolf populations. Refuge funding has allowed for the continued monitoring, management, and study of factors affecting the abundance of these populations. The Department has requested the assistance of the Service to accomplish capture and monitoring during 2010-2011.
