Black footed ferret recovery in Montana: a decision analysis

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Active searching for Mustela nigripes could reduce the probability of extinction from 0.99 to 0.95. If ferrets are found, active management in the wild is the best option, with translocation of some ferrets to another site if the original population is large enough (c20 adults). Protecting and managing ferret habitat for future reintroductions could reduce the probability of extinction from 0.95 to 0.93, with the expected benefits of habitat protection depending critically on the availability of captive-reared ferrets for reintroduction. -from Authors
