Elk to be radio-collared as part of study at Grand Canyon NP
Grand Canyon National Park wildlife biologists will be putting GPS collars on ten adult elk between late August and October of this year to gather movement data of the elk at the park's South Rim. The GPS collar information will be used to help draft an elk management plan.
Biologists will monitor the elk for two years to better understand their movement and interaction with visitors and residents within the South Rim Village. The collar data will allow the biologists to determine what areas in the park elk may be attracted to, and how they move around the village seasonally.
