ST. PAUL — Researchers plan to put GPS radio collars on around 20 female elk in northwestern Minnesota starting later this month as part of a project that aims to improve understanding of the animals’ movements and habitat use.

Gino D’Angelo of the Department of Natural Resources says the goal is to ultimately develop management programs that benefit wild elk and their habitat, while also minimizing conflicts with landowners.
