Each fall, Zoo Boise Conservation Fund narrows a big field of animal research grant applicants down to nine, and then lets the public vote on which of them to fund. Last year, the Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness wolverine study proposal got more votes than any other proposal. In response, the Fund awarded FSPW $27,000 to assist Idaho Department of Fish and Game in a rare carnivore study that stretched from the Selkirk Mountains across the Panhandle and into the Scotchman Peaks and Montana. Now, FSPW has been nominated again, and are calling on all of their Friends and friends of Friends to visit the Zoo Boise web site and vote for this year’s proposal.

Voting closes on October 28.
