WDFW to use data gathering GPS collars on animals
YAKIMA, Wash. — The Washington Department of Wildlife (WDFW) will capture and place GPS collars on aerial bighorn sheep, mule deer and mountain goats to gather data to monitor their activity for the next four years or so.
The department says the data will help wildlife crews understand “survival, movement, and habitat selection.” Each data collection will vary on species and location.
