Space use patterns of the Asiatic wild ass

Global positioning system (GPS) technology enables researchers to evaluate wildlife movements and space-use patterns in detail. With the permission and the assistance of the Israel Nature and Park Authority vet and rangers, we have recently attached a GPS collar to an adult wild ass captured in the wild (see its locations in the figure below). We plan to attach GPS collars to more individuals to study the wild ass spatial dynamics. Attention will be paid to movements among areas that may indicate connection between "subpopulations" and could provide insight into population spatial structure. Moreover, since in a reintroduced population individuals are expected to disperse into new areas, special attention will be paid to long-distance movements.
