Ashley will be assessing the movement and habitat use of Roosevelt elk in Humboldt and Del Norte counties, specifically looking at the effects of land use and forest management techniques on the connectivity of elk habitat. She will also be using remote game cameras to assess the density of elk across different land use types. Assessing the density and movement of elk will help inform effective land management decisions for increasing suitable elk habitat, and in turn, decrease the amount of human-wildlife conflict areas.
