Back to the wild: evaluating how a captive colony of Amargosa voles (Microtus californicus scirpensis) and colony releases into the field promote recovery of the species

The UC Davis School of Vet Med section of the ad hoc Amargosa vole team will implement this project to advance the preservation of this endangered species from extinction, contribute needed research data on the species’ basic biology, and perform service to our federal and state agency partners mandated with protecting the species and its environment.
