Program Overview and Results of the 2018 Field Season
Of the units that were completely surveyed in the core clusters in the park, 74% were found to be occupied by marmots, 16% were abandoned (surveyors saw past but not recent sign of marmot use) and 10% had no sign of marmots. The rate of occupancy averaged ranged from 56%-65% during the first 6 years of the study (Figure 2). When all units were combined, the overall marmot occupancy in 2018 was 58% (Figure 1).
