Factors influencing wildlife use of canal crossing structures in Arizona

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

The overall objective of this project is to evaluate the factors that influence wildlife use of crossing structures across canals in Arizona. Specifically, our objectives include:
1. Document species that use canal crossing structures.
2. Identify characteristics of crossing structures and landscape features at local and broad extents that promote wildlife use of these structures.
3. Evaluate levels of human use of these crossing structures and the potential effects of recreation on wildlife use of these areas.
Ultimately, this research would help inform land and wildlife agencies about how best to promote wildlife use of crossing structures across canals in Arizona.

This project is in collaboration with Thomas Bommarito (Wildlife Biologist) with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation.
