Carnivore and Nongame Research Program

The Chihuahuan Desert Borderlands are one of the most diverse regions of the world and supports over 500 species of birds, over 170 species of reptiles and amphibians, and over 120 species of mammals.  The habitat requirements and population dynamics of songbirds, carnivores, and other nongame species are poorly understood.  Researchers partner with private landowners and other resource agencies to better understand their life history.
