Louisiana SPDOR VHF Network (#31)
Short name: Louisiana SPDOR
Short description: Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries' Statewide Detection for Organismal Research (SPDOR) VHF Network
Description: The Statewide Passive Detection for Organismal Research (SPDOR) VHF Network project expects to deploy 30 receiver stations within the Louisiana Coastal Zone and along major migration corridors through generous financial and/or field staff support from the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation, the Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Program, ConocoPhillips, USFWS Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program, and the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries.

Current main objectives include:

1) Develop and install coast-wide network of at least 30 land based, VHF telemetry receiver stations that may be utilized by multiple researchers, partners, and for multiple taxa by 30 June 2020; we expect several stations to be operational by fall 2019.
2) Collaborate with at least one additional partner to measure suitability of the network for non-avian taxa (e.g., bats, insects, etc.) by 30 June 2020

Note that our main goal is to assist fellow wildlife biologists by the creation and maintenance of the necessary infrastructure to fill the network gap along the northern Gulf of Mexico.
