WIU Bobcat Research Update

The Illinois Bobcat Foundation is proud to support the continued bobcat research at WIU with a recent donation to fund the purchase of ten additional VHF radio collars. These collars will be used as part of their bobcat survival monitoring, which is ongoing until 2019. Preliminary findings estimated annual survival is 51 percent.

Quarterly reports of this research can be reviewed via Dr. Jacques Wildlife Ecology Lab website: http://cn-jacques.wixsite.com/jacqueslab/reports
