Creating a mule deer habitat mitigation tool for energy extraction activities
In the last nine months, Randy has worked with a team of resource managers and scientists led by Ted Toombs of the Environmental Defense Fund to design an approach to quantify changes to mule deer habitat. The overall goal is to support a habitat exchange. Those who disturb habitat, such as those in the energy extraction industry, may trade habitat disturbance credits with others who are in a position to improve habitat for mule deer. Both the magnitude and type of disturbance to mule deer habitat must be considered, and the cost of assessment of habitat should be commensurate with the value of ...
