Translocation protocol for the Ord's kangaroo rat (Dipodmys ordii)

Description

This report provides recommended methods for translocating Ord's kangaroo rats in Alberta based on the successes and limitations observed in previous studies, with particular consideration of the unique properties of the Alberta population. This report also describes knowledge gaps and recommended research that should be undertaken to determine whether Ord's kangaroo rat translocations can be used in Alberta to mitigate population decline and local extirpation of isolated habitats.
