CESU Piedmont: Estimating population size and spatial distribution of the South Georgia black bear population

This effort will produce accurate and contemporary population estimates for the South Georgia bear population. Such an estimate will allow for an evaluation of how current and future proposed harvest rates will impact the SGP. Data collection will include genetic hair-snare sampling, camera-trapping efforts, and GPS collaring activities. Together, this will provide information on black bear survival, reproduction, recruitment.
