“We are generating very high quality data that will be a lasting resource for this project and will form a foundation for future conservation actions. The quality of the work that’s coming out is astonishing. We really are creating a resource that is not going to be thrown in the trash in the next two years when the next technique comes along. That’s a cool place to be as I reflect on a long career of doing this work.” said Brad Shaffer, CCGP Director.
