Video of the Day: Surveying Elk Herds with a Wildlife Biologist

On Jan. 7, 2021, biologist Angelique Curtis conducted an aerial survey of the elk herds across Larimer County to asses the health of the animals following the Cameron Peak Fire, which is the largest wildfire ever to burn in Colorado. The flight also allowed her to obtain population demographic data to effectively and sustainably manage elk herds in Larimer County. Aero Tech, Inc. chief pilot Cameron Stallings also talks about the animal welfare aspects they consider in the air during the short duration of disturbances to the animals, which are warranted by the important biological information that is gathered from the survey.
