The aim is to determine the jackal population size, home range patterns and habitat selection, social structure and whether there is a genetically viable population. The data will allow us to identify the habitats and areas in which viable populations may persist and help us to identify the anthropogenic activities that are the greatest threat to the population. The work will provide data that can be used to develop appropriate management plans for conservation of the jackal population on Samos Island.

Funding for field research (site subsistence, logistics associated with the project, internal travel, research permits and funding for basic equipment and consumables) will be provided by Operation Wallacea in collaboration with Archipelagos Institute, which will host the project and provide local support.
