    Biography/Administrative History

    The Division of Natural Resources Management in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks was created in 1976, and was the final division to be separated from the original Ranger function. One primary focus of the records concerns the interactions between bears and visitors. Additional records document the parks’ attempt to understand wildlife populations, particularly the status and movements of deer populations, monitoring the remaining bands of Sierra Big Horn Sheep, and data on other species such as marmots, peregrine falcons, and spotted owls. Aquatic Management records document the health of aquatic ecosystems, including impacts of acid rain deposition and introduced fish populations. The branch added an aquatic biologist in 2005 to manage the recovery of local amphibian species, particularly the Mountain Yellow-Legged Frog. Additional aquatic records include surveys of Western Pond Turtle populations.
