Twenty female elk are now wearing GPS collars as they roam the Idaho National Laboratory Site. Idaho State University wildlife biologist Ryan Long is coordinating the elk study for his graduate work. Funding for the study comes from the Department of Energy through Stollers Environmental Surveillance, Education and Research Program. ESER provides funding for research at several universities, including ISU.
Information collected about the desert elk will be compared to research currently being conducted on an elk herd in Oregon that occupies more typical forested habitat. The collars record location, activity and movement data for elk that started claiming a more permanent place on site ground a few decades ago.
