The Arizona Game and Fish Department put radio collars on twenty mule deer near the San Francisco Peaks north of Flagstaff, to track their movements over the next three years. The data will identify wildlife corridors where deer travel from one place to another, and may eventually lead to highway projects that create safer roads for both drivers and deer. KNAU’s Melissa Sevigny spoke with biologist Jeff Gagnon about the federally funded experiment.

Twenty mule deer near Flagstaff have been outfitted with collars to study their movement.

The Arizona Game and Fish Department captured and collared the deer last month around the San Francisco Peaks. Biologists are using data from the collars to learn more about the daily and seasonal movement of the deer.

Traffic engineers and wildlife officials say the information will help guide planning for future road projects to avoid collisions between vehicles and the animals, and to protect the deer's habitat.
