Problems or threats to the GCN species populations in Nevada are commercial and industrial development, landfill construction or operation, dams, road construction, urban development, water diversion, municipal and industrial point source, commercial harvest, conversion of riparian forests, excessive non-commercial harvest or collection, channel maintenance and confined animal operations. Other problems or threats to GCN species are crop production practices, excessive groundwater withdrawal, fire suppression, management of or for certain species, channel alteration, exotic species, parasites, pathogens, recreation, grazing, predation, forestry activities and resource extraction. The Nevada Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy has addressed these problems or threats to the GCN species population with wildlife conservation actions. These wildlife conservation actions include decreasing the data gap by gathering more information on GCN species, by fire management with controlled burns and with habitat protection by initiating projects to protect existing key habitat or habitat components. Key habitat restoration and improvement by initiating projects to restore or enhance existing habitats and with land acquisition by purchasing land or conservation easement that is important to GCN species are also included in the Nevada Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy. Wildlife conservation actions also include population management by directly manipulating GCN species population with restocking, translocation and harvest management, with public relations and education by increasing public awareness of GCN species and key habitats through education and public outreach.

Be aware that some Fish & Wildlife goods do require additional documentation from the shipper, not least of which is the Convention On International Trade in Endangered Species declaration paperwork for animal products or materials that are derived from animals listed on the CITES Convention. I will address that in an upcoming article. Lastly, please work closely with your vendor to ensure that the commercial invoice that they provide has some key details, such as the quantity of each item, the value for each, the common name for the animal as well as the scientific name, and good contact information for both you and your vendor. The Game Cam or Trail Cam as it is known to its users is a unique device that is high tech in its features, yet simple to operate and enjoy for just about anyone that has an interest in wildlife photography. The popularity of these cameras has grown at a very fast pace over the past few years and they have opened up a number of usage possibilities to their users. Hunters have really taken to the cams as a wonderful tool to locate game and pattern game movements in just about any location and terrain situation. Many professional wildlife photographers as well as hobbyists are using these cams for work and play. You will find a lot of pictures in today's hunting and wildlife magazines that were taken with a gam cam as these cool little units can be in the field and on the job twenty four hours a day. At present day, there are many versions of cams on the market ranging from the very simple 35mm film versions to the now popular digital high resolution units. Most of these digital cams will also capture video clips that are downloadable to your home computer and/or cd burner. I have also seen a couple of wireless base stations that will automatically send captured information(pictures) from your camera in the field to your computer in your home without you even having to get out of your easy chair.
