2019 ONP Summer Mountain Goat Capture

July 29, 2019

Summer of 2019 brought volunteers and helicopters back to Olympic National Park for a massive mountain goat capture a relocation project. The RMGA is extensively involved in the successful live capture and relocation of some of the park’s mountain goats. This is one volunteer's experience in helping with the live captures!

RMGA Board Members, Jason Haskell, Darryn Epp and I were in present to help handle the captured goats at the Hurricane Ridge processing site. We worked side by side with the Park Service to help get the animals safety evaluated and crated for relocation to Washington’s North Cascades.
