Pronghorn restoration seminar planned for March 6

IMG 5489Last year a group of dedicated researchers and biologists captured, transported and released more than 100 pronghorn antelope from the Texas Panhandle to the Trans-Pecos region.

Nearly a year later, the move has had its obstacles and successes.

Now, the Borderlands Research Institute of Sul Ross State University and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department will host a March 6 seminar to discuss current findings of the Pronghorn Restoration and Research Project.


The seminar will begin at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 6 in the Espino Conference Center, Morgan University Center. Refreshments will be served and the public is invited.


The purpose of the project is to identify causative factors associated with declining herds and to restore pronghorn to their historic habitats in the Trans-Pecos. The seminar will provide an overview of the ongoing restoration efforts and an update of the research findings.


The Pronghorn Restoration and Research Project is a collaborative effort by the BRI, TPWD, Trans-Pecos Pronghorn Working Group, Texas landowners and concerned citizens.
