Eastern Spotted Skunk Surveys
August 2021 - December 2023
- Arkansas Game and Fish Commission
Populations of the Eastern Spotted Skunk have declined dramatically over the last 50 years. The species is currently petitioned for federal protection under the endangered species act. Information about the species' distribution and population status is needed to inform the listing decision and to help state level managers protect the species. This project is using game cameras to survey for Eastern Spotted Skunks in the prairies and grasslands of SW Arkansas.
