The project is being conducted under the umbrella of the Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center in Scottsdale, Arizona. The primary research Team is made up of retired wildlife biologists volunteering their time and expertise. The core Team has over 150 years of wildlife management experience at the Arizona Game and Fish Department. The group has previously worked on wild turkeys, Mountain Lions, Black Bears, bobcats, other small carnivores and the endangered Allegheny woodrat. In addition, other technical experts, including wildlife veterinarians, are helping ensure our use of the most appropriate, safe and humane techniques and protocols in capturing and handling the bobcats.
