Bureau of Land Management awards contract for golden eagle research

The California Desert District of the US Bureau of Land Management recently awarded a contract to our research team for study of the impact of renewable energy development on golden eagles in the California Desert. Our team will use newly developed GPS-GSM telemetry systems to track movements of golden eagles and use analysis tools we developed for golden eagle research in eastern North America to the data we collect in the California Desert. Award of this contract represents an exciting opportunity and national validation of the techniques we have developed here at WVU. This work was reported in WVU Today, in Morgantown's Dominion Post, in the West Virginia State Journal and in the Daily Athenaeum.
