In 2014, SCI Foundation partnered with the Arizona Department of Fish and Game to restore bighorn sheep in the Santa Catalina Mountains. Arizona is concurrently monitoring the impact of mountain lions on the reintroduced bighorns to minimize lion impacts on the state’s sheep restoration goals.
Jack Hanna, a prominent wildlife adventurer and T.V. personality, was present for the capture and release last year and plans to feature the Santa Catalina Desert Bighorn Sheep Project on his show Into the Wild! The episode will be on his website during the week of May 11, 2015.
