The Bonaparte Plateau study area is part of the Government of BC’s Moose Research Project which examines causes for moose population declines. The study area was selected due to its high level of MPB infestation and resource extraction.
Cameras deployed within the study area will be used in conjunction with the Government of BC’s radio-collared 8-month old calf moose data to understand the impacts of human landscape disturbance (primarily logging) on large carnivore distributions and moose habitat selection, survival and predation risk.
