The goal of this study is to assess the level of Preble’s Meadow Jumping Mouse exchange between proximate recovery populations and among drainages in the same recovery population, and use this information to direct management actions, aid recovery plan development, and evaluate conservation strategies outlined in the draft recovery plan. This research is in collaboration with the Colorado Natural Heritage Program.
