Description: Concomitant with the delisting of the endangered Virginia northern flying squirrel (Glaucomys sabrinus fuscus) in 2008, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service mandated a 10-year post-delisting monitoring effort to ensure that subspecies population and distribution stability will persist following a changed regulatory status. Although criticized for the inability to generate detailed population parameters, most distribution and demographic data for the Virginia northern flying squirrel have come from long-term nest-box monitoring. Because live-trapping efforts to generate mark-recapture census data largely have failed due to low trap susceptibility, post-delisting monitoring will continue to rely on nest-box surveys. However, managers will need a better understanding of actual Virginia northern flying squirrel occupancy and detection probabilities to fully use these data.
