Gallery: Allegheny Woodrat Survey Projects

The Allegheny Woodrat is less of a "rat" and more of a cute "rock squirrel" that lives in rocky habitat, cave-like cliffs, and talus slopes in Pennsylvania and West Virginia. It has disappeared from New York and where it remains is most often only found in areas of large continuous tracts of forest. Considered state threatened in Pennsylvania, it is an animal we typically look for sign of when conducting cave and mine surveys. This species is sometimes encountered when developing near rocky habitat, and can be mitigated with additional rocky habitat with some success, especially when connecting habitats together with rock cover. Since ~2001 BCM has experience with woodrat habitat surveys, trapping, radio telemetry, long term annual monitoring, and habitat enhancement.
