Section 7. Abstract


This project plans to hire a wildlife specialist and wildlife technician to assist the Shoshone-Paiute Tribes Wildlife and Parks Department (W&P) in conducting an inventory of the wildlife on and around the Duck Valley Reservation. To date there has been no accurate inventory on the Reservation or our historical hunting, fishing, and gathering areas. These areas have been guaranteed to us in the treaty promise of the Boise Valley and Bruneau. This is the first step of developing a long term wildlife management plan for the reservation including the Owyhee River canyon to the Northwest of the Reservation. There are numerous species of threatened and endangered birds and wildlife on the Reservation and its surrounding area. It is the tribes hope to protect these species and enhance the habitat available for them. After the inventory is complete the Tribes can then develop a management plan and begin on the ground protective and enhancement measures. This will include exclosure fencing of various wetland areas, enhancing habitat for waterfowl, and preserving areas for bighorn sheep and other big game. There needs to be attention given to this sensitive ecosystem to maintain this wildlife for future generations to enjoy.
