Monitoring use of wildlife drinkers: The objective of the agreement is for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Arizona Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit to gather and use scientific data and processes to help inform management by more appropriately presenting water for desired species (such as desert bighorn sheep) while limiting use by non-target species (mountain lions). To do this, the Arizona Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit will deploy approximately 75 camera traps at artificial drinkers for wildlife, in the Sonora, Chihuahua and Mohave deserts. The research unit will gather, collate, and organize imagery taken from these camera traps while also analyzing imagery of mountain lions and bighorn sheep to quantify the time of day these species visit artificial waters, and the time of year (seasons) these species frequent waters. The research unit will also generate comparisons and contrasts for patterns of these species use across each site and ecosystem. This agreement also covers work consisting of detecting significant changes in the status of medium and large-sized vertebrates, namely using camera trap technology as an Inventory and Monitoring tool. Modified November 8, 2010 to add $95,000 to existing agreement with University of Arizona to extend this project work.
