Understanding how to support a growing human population while sustaining wild species requires information on the movement and distribution patterns of animals living near people. To quantify the habitat and corridor needs of native wildlife in Virginia, we aim to study the movement of bobcat (Lynx rufus) with satellite tracking collars starting in January 2022. Using the GPS location data and state-of-art computing and statistical models, we will quantify bobcat habitat use, habitat preference, and travel corridors. Because bobcat use a diversity of habitats (e.g., forests, farm fields, parks & backyards) and eat a diversity of prey, their habitat preferences and travel corridors are believed to represent the needs of many other wildlife species. Maintaining intact bobcat habitat may therefore serve to conserve a diversity of wildlife species in rural Virginia landscapes. This project is being developed in collaboration with Virginia Tech, Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute, and the Albemarle Natural Heritage Committee.
