Putting the Data to Work
Liza is planning to use trend estimates to monitor Species of Greatest Conservation Need to inform the State Wildlife Action Plan. Trend and population estimates are especially useful for Tier II species which often lack data compared to higher priority species, like Greater Sage-Grouse. Trend estimates will also help prioritize management and conservation action for species in Colorado because we now have 10 years of monitoring data.
