EFFICIENT MONITORING OF WILDLIFE RESPONSES TO SEISMIC LINE RESTORATION IN THE ALGAR HABITAT RESTORATION PROGRAM

We propose a three-phased project to design, test and implement a cost-effective monitoring program to measure the response of wildlife to seismic restoration in the Algar study area. We initiated early stages of the experimental design and pilot sampling for this project in late 2015 (please see Burton 2015 AUPRF progress report). In 2016 we are proposing to complete the design phase and expand the pilot sampling in preparation for full implementation of the monitoring in 2017-19.
