Current research on mountain goats in Washington focuses on delineating habitat and the development of a sightability and group size bias model for mountain goat surveys. To that end, in 2002 and 2003, 32 mountain goats in the Cascade Range were captured and fitted with GPS collars. Some preliminary findings are presented here and aspects for further research are identified.
