We begun trapping at South Fork on April 4th (Happy birthday to my little brother, Max!) and for the first 3 trap visits during the first session we caught and tagged 12 new individuals and recapped 4 individuals that were tagged last year! I am hoping between the next 2 sessions we will have some more "long-term" recaps. We also surveyed 1 new site that didn't turn out to be that great although we did find pygmy rabbits, but we did complete our first veg transects of the year at that site!
I also am now signed up to do a local TV interview in Elko and a brown bag lunch talk at the NDOW office on April 19th! I am really looking forward to getting to do more outreach now that this project is really getting underway!
Cody got to hold his first pygmy rabbit! 110 g baby!
