Description
Summary:In order to evaluate potential effects of the Susitna-Watana Hydroelectric Project on brown bears, black bears, and wolves, a study is being conducted with these primary objectives: (1) estimate the current populations of these animals in the study area using existing data from Alaska Department of Fish & Game (ADF & G); (2) evaluate bear use of streams that support spawning of anadromous fishes in habitats downstream of the proposed dam that may be altered by the Project; (3) describe the seasonal distribution of and habitat use by wolves in the study area using existing data from ADF & G; and (4) synthesize historical and current data on bear movements and seasonal habitat use in the study area including the substantial body of data gathered by radio-tracking during the 1980s. This document details Alaska Energy Authority's status in implementing the study as set forth in the FERC-approved Revised study plan.
