A three year partnership between Texas Tech University, the National Wild Turkey Federation, and the State of Campeche began in January 2010. This study will be the first to thoroughly investigate the ecology, conservation, and management of the ocellated turkey. This project demonstrates the commitment to wildlife conservation by the wildlife managers of Campeche and the United States. Working at two study sites, one an agricultural environment and the other a jungle environment, investigators will learn important information on habitat use, survival, cause-specific mortality, reproduction, and details of turkey reintroduction programs. These objectives will be accomplished by equipping 50-60 ocellated turkeys with radios and tracking their movements and survival throughout the three year study period. Already this study is a prime example of multi-agency cooperation between conservation groups in Mexico and the United States. Research accomplishments in Campeche will be extrapolated to the entire range of ocellated turkey populations.
