Image CA Fire from MODIS
This image, captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), shows fires from California in 2013. While providing important information, MODIS circles the earth every 1-2 days. FUEGO would give continual coverage of a single landmass.

Image DinkeyLoggingPhoto2.jpg
This mechanical thinning project was conducted in previously suitable Pacific fisher habitat in the Sierra National Forest, in southern Sierra Nevada. Ironically this commercial logging project was promoted as a project designed to "restore" fisher habitat, but Hanson said the homogenized conditions it created are exactly the opposite of what scientific studies are concluding Pacific fishers need.

Image FisherScatDogStudyPhoto4July2012.jpg
The McNally fire area, where Hanson's fisher scat surveys were conducted, shows the complex early seral forest habitat that fishers are actively using. The many standing snags, downed logs, and montane chaparral patches and natural conifer regeneration provide the biomass and structural complexity that make for good habitat for the fisher's small mammal prey.
