Citizen scientists sought for wildlife monitoring in Montana

Great Falls Tribune:  “The Montana Wilderness Association is looking for backcountry citizen scientists to help collect data on wolverines and other wildlife on the east side of the Continental Divide.

“Volunteers are needed to help with wildlife monitoring efforts by adopting one or more routes within the study area and surveying them throughout the winter.

“In past years, MWA, in partnership with Winter Wildlands Alliance, Wild Things Unlimited, Defenders of Wildlife and the Helena National Forest, has identified several wolverines, as well as lynx, grizzly bears and other forest carnivores west of the Continental Divide.

“However, little is known about wildlife presence or activity on the east side of the Divide near Nevada Mountain.

“Volunteers need to be backcountry-savvy and prepared to work and travel in a remote winter environment. Proper equipment (skis or snowshoes) is required.”

  1. That one might be one of the new bobcat/house (pedigreed) breeds . The other one looks as if the head is too small and entirely domestic, and the body.. maybe lynx (?)– with those big feet ???? It is collared. Maybe it is just me. ???
