From these staging areas, mountain goats would then be transported to pre-selected staging areas in the North Cascades, and then brought to release locations where they would be returned to the wild.

A wildlife official said about of the animals survived the ordeal and their first winter in the North Cascades. Mountain Goat Research Report page 3 In the North Cascades, we successfully allocated collars according to the distribution determined desirable by the working group.

In the South Cascades, where wilderness captures had to be by ground darting, captured goats in wilderness were underrepresented due to the low efficiency of that method of capture. The mountain goat population in the North Cascades recently saw a significant uptick — by goats to be exact — thanks to recent efforts by multiple government agencies, local tribes.

“Mountain goat relocation will allow these animals to reoccupy historical range areas in the Cascades and increase population viability,” U.S. Forest Service Wildlife biologist Jesse Plumage. mountain goat habitat model will constituted Adam Wells’ master’s thesis.
