Fire, Logging and Elk Migration in the Yaha Tinda  
Map of Mark Hebblewhite's study area that includes the Yaha Tinda Ranch, Banff National Park and the Dogrib fire. Mark has been researching the interaction between elk and wolves.  One project funded by ACA Grants in Biodiversity looks at the impact of fire and salvage logging on elk migration.  Elk prefer the yummy grass that springs up in newly burned areas, so in the last few years, they stayed near the Yaha Tinda Ranch rather than migrate to Banff National Park in the summer.
