Reintroduction of Native Species of Wildlife at Mason Mountain Wildlife Management Area: The Hows and Whys with Dr. Jim Gallagher
Reintroduction of native species are attempted for a variety of reasons but often because we need more information about the process. Reintroduction efforts at Mason Mountain WMA have involved the collared peccary, the black-tailed prairie dog, and the Texas horned lizard.
We will discuss the reason for reintroducing each of these species, the methods used, and the outcome or status of each.
Jim Gallagher has worked at Mason Mountain WMA for more than seven years and spent ten years at the Chaparral Wildlife Management Area. In between he was an assistant professor and extension wildlife specialist for Texas A&M AgriLife Extension. Jim has an M.S. and a Ph.D. in Wildlife Science and Fisheries Science from Texas A&M University.
The monthly meeting of the Hill Country Chapter of the Texas Master Naturalist program is free and open to the public. Please join us in the Upper Guadalupe River Authority Lecture Hall, 125 North Lehmann Drive in Kerrville. Members and guests have time to chat starting at 6:15 p.m. Monthly awards are presented at 6:45. Speaker begins at 7.
