Since 2011, the Borderlands Research Institute has partnered with Texas Parks and Wildlife and private landowners to restore pronghorn populations in the Trans-Pecos region of Texas. These efforts were recently highlighted in a YETI short film, directed by Ben Masters, called "Pronghorn Revival".
J.C. Kiddo Campbell is a graduate research assistant from Castroville, Texas. As an undergraduate student at Sul Ross, Kiddo worked as a wildlife technician on research projects within BRI's Desert Quail Research Program. Now, as a graduate student, Kiddo is researching the movements, survival, and habitat use of translocated mule deer in Trans-Pecos Texas.
