INTRODUCTIONIn compliance with all applicable environmental laws and regulations, the U.S. Department of the Navy (DON) and Joint Region Marianas (JRM) are committed to stewardship and management of natural resources within the JRM Area of Responsibility (AOR). Ungulates introduced to Guam include feral pig (Sus scrofa), Philippine deer (Cervus mariannus), and Asiatic water buffalo or carabao (Bubalus bubalis). All have significantly impacted the natural ecosystem of Guam. Ungulates have adverse effects on habitats such as wetlands and native limestone forests on Department of Defense (DoD) lands. Ungulate overgrazing of vegetation and damage to soil resources creates erosion and sediment runoff within numerous watersheds and reservoirs. Sediment runoff also impacts marine ecosystems and causes siltation to coral reefs. Research, control and/or eradication of these ungulates reduces impacts to watersheds and sensitive forest habitats, and enhances populations of native species, particularly threatened and endangered species.PURPOSEThe purpose of this Cooperative Agreement (hereafter: Agreement) is to:1. Prepare and implement a project Work Plan pursuant to details below for the performance of the Statement of Work (SOW) that will accomplish Technical Requirements and Agreement Tasks;2. Conduct detection surveys for ungulates within JRM AOR lands;3. Provide control, eradication or sterilization services for ungulates within JRM AOR lands;4. Implement and/or update plan for the management of ungulates within JRM AOR lands;5. Implement studies to determine population estimates and demographics of ungulates within JRM AOR lands; and,6. Analyze and report on efficiency of methods and management techniques to provide professional, results-driven ungulate management services.LOCATIONThe location for the performance of this Agreement is on DoD lands within the JRM AOR to include, but not limited to, Naval Base Guam (NBG), NBG Naval Munitions Site (NMS) and Andersen Air Force Base (AAFB).
