A compilation of various projects I captured and worked
on during my internship with Texas Parks and Wildlife.
Texas Parks and Wildlife biologists just completed their annual pronghorn surveys to gather data on density, distribution, and herd composition. Found only in North America, pronghorn are native to the Trans-Pecos and Panhandle areas of Texas.
Desert Bighorn rams at the Elephant Mountain Wildlife Management Area in west Texas scoping out territory in preparation for breeding season. Texas Parks and Wildlife biologists are restoring this native species into its historic range after disappearing due to unregulated hunting, domestic livestock diseases, and habitat loss and fragmentation.
These Horned Lizards are part of a study happening at Muse Wildlife Management Area near Brownwood, Texas. Texas Parks and Wildlife biologists are tracking wild-caught lizards as they attempt to reintroduce them to their historic range.
Texas Parks and Wildlife Biologists use an echo sounder, a non-invasive acoustic technology, to identify the vegetation and fish biomass of Lake Austin.
