Very little is known about ringtails (Bassariscus astutus) in Zion National Park), including their distribution within park boundaries. We combined trail cameras and a novel track plate method to determine the occupancy and distribution of ringtails in Zion National Park, in southwestern Utah. Both methods successfully detected ringtails in various habitats sampled.
