  • Power of faecal pellet count and camera trapping indices to monitor

      Abstract: Naomi E. Davis, Julian Di Stefano, Jim Whelan, John Wright, Lorraine Taylor, Graeme Coulson, Holly Sitters

      Efficient monitoring of changes in animal populations is essential for effective wildlife management. We compared the statistical power of faecal pellet counts and camera trapping to detect spatial and temporal changes in mammal activity levels. Indices derived from pellet count occurrence data can be used to simultaneously monitor multiple species where detection of medium to large effect sizes is adequate; however, using frequency indices derived from camera trapping maximises the statistical power of monitoring programs to detect changes in populations.

      Sampling procedures not exactly designed for a specific purpose (‘opportunistic’ data) are commonly used to model species distribution and analyse niche segregation among species. By analysising niche overlap among morphs in a polymorphic lizard, we show how opportunistically collected data have serious limitations without properly accounting for the spatial structure of the data. We point out the need of being cautious in interpretation of ENMs when occurrences are spatially nested. Photography by Roberto Sacchi.

      The sambar deer has been identified as a major threat to high-elevation peatlands in south-eastern Australia. Our 4-year camera study revealed that sambar deer utilised peatlands during October–June. Sambar deer activity was crepuscular and was greatest in dense woody vegetation cover close to roads. Ground-based shooting reduced sambar deer activity in peatlands. Photograph by camera trap.

      Between 2008 and 2015, we observed and treated mares with the PZP-22 immunocontraceptive vaccine on two large wild horse ranges in the western USA. Mares were hand-treated during gathers or remotely darted. Population growth decreased linearly as the proportion of mares treated and vaccine effectiveness increased, with growth rates diminishing by as much as 74% relative to baseline levels.

      Abstract: Amanda R. Goldberg, Dean E. Biggins, Shantini Ramakrishnan, Jonathan W. Bowser, Courtney J. Conway, David A. Eads, Jeffrey Wimsatt

      Insecticides are applied worldwide as a tool to control both wildlife and/or human diseases but we need to document the impact these chemicals have on non‐target animals. We examined and discovered that deltamethrin (an insecticide used to control flea vectors of the plague bacterium) reduced survival of non‐target small animals in three different study sites in the western United States. Insecticides are an important tool to conserve species threated by wildlife diseases, but we need to consider and evaluate their effects on non‐target animals when making management decisions regarding the best methods to reduce disease prevalence.

      Abstract: Marc Filla, Rinzin Phunjok Lama, Tim Filla, Marco Heurich, Niko Balkenhol, Matthias Waltert, Igor Khorozyan

      Livestock depredation drives large carnivores into conflicts with humans and poses a major threat to snow leopards in Asia. This study in the Nepalese Himalaya, which assesses livestock depredation by snow leopards regarding suitable intervention strategies, shows an urgent need for improved herding practices, predator-proofing corrals, and deterrent applications. We recommend controlled experiments to assess the effectiveness of different interventions – and wide application of the most effective ones to promote human–snow leopard co-existence. Photograph by Marc Filla.

      Increases in wildfire severity in Australia’s temperate forests is a major threat to forest-dependant species. Our study assessed the effect of differing levels of fire severity on the greater glider population density in southern New South Wales and found lowest densities in high fire-severity sites. We highlight the importance of low fire-severity sites as refuges in the short-term after wildfires. Photograph by Monica Knipler.

      Abstract: Stephen R. Griffiths, Kylie A. Robert, Christopher S. Jones

      Hollow-dependent endotherms can experience hyperthermia and dehydration when occupying poorly insulated nest boxes during extreme heat. In this study, we compared cavity microclimates inside different artificial hollows during extremely hot summer weather, and showed that chainsaw hollows carved into live trees provide a much more stable and buffered microclimate than do log hollows and nest boxes. We recommend that managers consider incorporating chainsaw hollows into wildlife conservation programs in regions that experience extremely hot weather events. Photograph by Stephen Griffiths.

      Vehicle-based shooting is widely used to control peri-urban deer populations, but the animal welfare outcomes of this technique have not been quantified in Australasia. We assessed the animal welfare outcomes of professional vehicle-based shooting of peri-urban rusa deer in eastern Australia. Our study showed that animal welfare outcomes varied among shooters and with shooting distance, and that the frequency of the most adverse animal welfare event (escaping wounded) was 3.5% of deer that were shot at and hit.

      Knowledge of the seasonal movements of small insectivorous bats is essential for their conservation. We describe the seasonal cycle of congregation and movement patterns of the southern bent-winged bat, a critically endangered taxon in southeastern Australia. We record previously unknown movements by this taxon, and a more-than doubling of the overnight flight distance currently used to define management buffer zones. These findings have important implications for managing emerging risks, such as mortalities at windfarms and potential spread of exotic disease. Photograph by Emmi van Harten.

      Recreational hunting is popular across Australia for native and introduced wildlife species but little is known about long-term trends in harvest. We assessed recreational harvest levels via hunter surveys from three groups of wildlife (deer, ducks and quail) over 11 years in Victoria, Australia. Our study revealed that harvest levels for introduced deer have increased markedly, but there has been little change for native ducks and quail. Changes in hunter numbers, behaviour and efficiency are important to monitor for sustainable wildlife use. Photograph by Steven Wade.

      Data on the space use and movement patterns of a species are important, but are lacking for many species. Here we tracked central bearded dragons (Pogona vitticeps) across different seasons to describe their space use and movement patterns, and to investigate what influences these patterns. Movement patterns were, as expected, driven by temperature, but unlike related species, there were a high proportion of individuals roaming over large areas. Photograph by Adam Bernich.

      Managing free-roaming cats requires understanding where cats are found and how this varies across the year. Using trail cameras in rural and urban areas in southern Ontario, Canada, cats were more likely to be found near buildings and away from agriculture in the spring/summer and near major roads and away from coyotes in the fall/winter. Our results have important implications for the development of management plans and the design of future studies. Photograph by Emily Lupton.

      A feral cat eradication program is underway on Kangaroo Island, but controlling cats in large stretches of woodland remains a significant challenge. To address this issue, we tested the efficacy of the feral cat bait ‘Curiosity’ in woodland habitats. After baiting, the density of feral cats fell from 1.18 to 0.58 cats km −2, and 75% (six of eight) of GPS-collared cats within the zone died. Photograph by Rosemary Hohnen.

      Conservation Detection Dogs (CDDs) are a highly effective means of collecting data on elusive and low-density plant and animal species, yet they can be inaccessible for many conservation organisations. A model in which skilled and committed volunteers participate in CDD training and deployment may increase CDDs accessibility. This study explores the motivations and satisfaction of handlers in a volunteer-based CDD model over 3 years and discusses implications for recruitment and retention to promote long-term cost effectiveness of volunteer-based programs.

      A density estimate derived from camera trapping and spatially explicit capture recapture (SECR) modelling was produced for the first time for the numbat, a small cryptic mammal with individually distinct coat patterns. This has resulted in better population estimates. With refinements, this could form the basis of a standardised approach to assessing and monitoring numbat populations and their responses to translocations, threats and management, leading to better biodiversity conservation outcomes.

      Many studies have investigated single-species resource/habitat selection; however, there are still gaps in our understanding of multi-species systems and resource/habitat partitioning. We used an array of camera traps to investigate sympatric-ungulate responses to seasonal phenological gradients. We found unique species-specific utilisation patterns, emphasising that generalisations are difficult when managing multiple-species resources. Photograph by Smithsonian Institution.

      To mitigate conservation conflict, large carnivores are often translocated into novel environments, and are not typically monitored afterwards. We investigated the impacts of translocation by comparing translocated and resident grizzly bears, and found differences in exploration behaviour, habitat use, and response to human-caused mortality risk. Managers and the public should recognise that translocated bears require both time and space to adapt to their new environment. Photograph by Mark Bradley.

      The spatio-temporal partitioning of large African carnivores (lions, spotted hyaenas and leopards) influences interspecific competition and coexistence within small, enclosed reserves. We deployed 110 camera traps (unbaited and baited) across Madikwe Game Reserve in South Africa and found temporal and spatial exclusion between lions and spotted hyaenas. However, no evidence was found of spatio-temporal partitioning between lions and leopards, and spotted hyaenas and leopards. Photograph by Emma E. M. Evers.

      Climate change is impacting the availability of resources for wildlife, potentially leading to elevated stress levels harmful to their health. Our research shows that African elephants living in Kenya’s Tsavo ecosystem may be physiologically unaffected by reduced habitat quality during typical dry seasons. Privately protected areas provide crucial habitat for wildlife during dry seasons, but elephants should be closely monitored regarding their stress response to increasingly severe drought periods.

      Roads and traffic often cause injury or death of wildlife through vehicle collisions. We aimed to identify the predictors associated with road-kill risk, finding that forested areas with no roadside fence on curved sections of road posed the highest risk to animals. We illustrated the value of using data-driven approaches to predictive modelling and offer a guide to practical management interventions that can mitigate road-related hazards.

      Quick and cost-effective field assessments of ecological and socioeconomic data are needed to aid wildlife conservation. In this study, we present a structured interview protocol, the Wildlife–Human Survey, and investigate its effectiveness in a pilot study in southeast Brazil. We present the pros and cons of using this protocol to gather information on mammal assemblages and human interactions in rural landscapes shared by both. We also highlight its potential for contributing to wildlife research and management. Photograph by Edinaldo Mesalino.

      Conservation actions and habitat restoration frequently depend on the motivation of community groups, often stimulated by ‘flagship’ species of concern. In south-eastern Australia, the installation of nest boxes to support hollow-dependent wildlife is a common activity of such groups. Analysis of monitoring data collected by a community group on nest box use by a threatened marsupial provides insights into the ecology of this species, and into the strengths and limitations of community-based, citizen science monitoring.
