Improving understanding of habitat loss for furbearers
Hair samples collected from fishers and martens will shed light on how habitat loss and change are impacting fur-bearing species in the Williston Basin. 207 samples were retrieved from 184 hair-snagging stations set up over the 2,140 km2 project area.
