BLM Tracking Game to Aid Development of Wildlife Infrastructure

The Bureau of Land Management Salt Lake Field Office and the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources are teaming up to gather big game information on public lands in northern Utah.

Last week, employees assessed the physical condition of big game and placed GPS collars on them. This is meant to help identify high-migration areas and monitor animal health, according to the Bureau of Land Management.

The data from this research, along with a state-wide fencing effort, will aid in developing wildlife-friendly infrastructure, including bridges, overpasses, culverts, and fencing, for the migration of big game across northern Utah.

Park City’s wildlife overpass, which residents can monitor by video camera, has been entertaining animal-lovers since it opened to four-legged traffic in 2018.
