Saving a species in the desert

Veterinary professor Janet Foley attaches a tracking collar, which includes an antenna that she will wrap loosely around the Amargosa vole’s neck, as she and her team prepare to release the “Davis Dozen” in the Mojave Desert. The voles included some that were bred at UC Davis — making this the first release of captive-bred Amargosa voles since the rodent's addition to the state and federal endangered species lists more than 30 years ago. The Las Vegas Review-Journal covered the release with a story by Henry Brean and photos by Jeff Scheid.
